Evolution Man by Roy Lewis

Evolution Man or, How I Ate My Father is a book I recently picked up from the paperback picks shelf at my local library. Originally published in 1960, Evolution Man is a dry, Python-esque look at human evolution, if evolution had occurred within one family, and with the willful participation of our human ancestors. (I'm quite sure Jean Auel must have read this book). It's written with old fashioned, no nonsense British sensibility. While no modern reader should view Evolution man as any kind of textbook, it's an interesting fictional take on the story of how we came to be.
