We will discuss: 

The Evolution Man...or How I Ate My Father  by Roy Lewis.

Here is a typical Stone Age family, reimagined by Roy Lewis in this hilarious novel as characters in some glittering drawing-room comedy. 


Father, who has a scientific turn of mind, has just discovered fire. 
Mother makes sure the children finish supper, even when the plat du jour is toad. 
Uncle Vanya thinks that the species has been flirting with disaster ever since 
it began to chip flint into tools. 
While little Alexander has gotten himself in deep trouble by making the first cave painting: artists are always so misunderstood.

 Lewis has written a witty, intelligent satire of the lives of our remote ancestors, complete with highly revisionist accounts of everything from the origins of courtship to the staples of Pleistocene cuisine.

For practical reasons, attendance is limited to 14.
If you wish to attend, please send me an e-mail.
