Parasites Like Us Paperback
by Adam Johnson
This is the debut novel by the author of The Orphan Master's Son: winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2013.
After trashing his cherry '72 Corvette, illegally breaking into an ancient burial site, and snacking on 12,000-year-old popcorn, Hank Hannah finds that he's inadvertently unleashed the apocalypse.
Hank, a professor of anthropology back in the days when there were still co-eds to ogle and now one of only twelve humans still alive on earth, decides to record the last days of human civilization for whomever - or whatever - might replace us.
