READIN

Jeremy's journal

He became so absorbed in his reading that he spent his nights reading from dusk to dawn, and his days from dawn to dusk; and thus, from so little sleep and from so much reading, his brain dried up, so that he came to lose all judgement.

Miguel de Cervantes

A book I'm looking for

I am going to throw this out into the æther and see if any help comes my way...

When I was young, I read a book that I loved and reread several times. I have forgotten the author's name (I believe he was French) and the title. Here is all I know for sure about the book:

  • It was set in the Neolithic era. The characters were a family of cavemen who did things like discovering fire, inventing written language, etc.
  • The narrator's uncle was named Vanya.
  • On the cover of the book (a paperback) was a print of Picasso's The Minotaur.
If anyone knows the book I'm thinking of I would be greatly indebted to you for providing me with that information.
