About Caz Zyvatkauskas

In the early 1960s my family immigrated to Canada via England. Both my parents were native born Lithuanians who lived through the Second World War. As a teenager in Scarborough, Ontario, I worked in a plastic factory. Following that I was fortunate enough to spend many years in the editorial departments of The Globe and Mail and The Toronto Sun. Recently I took early retirement from the University of Toronto where I worked for 25 years in the communications department. I live in Gresham, Oregon with my husband.

Review by: Stephen Watt on June 12, 2013 :
I've been interested in this era of early human history since reading Clan of the Cavebear as a kid. Dead Stone Wake could be seen as an grown up's version of that book, with better writing and a more informed anthropological perspective.

It's a great read with a powerful ending, and it makes a persuasive argument that the qualities of what we consider human are shared with many of our fellow creatures on earth, both those still existing and those we tragically wiped out.

Review by: Susan Grant on June 11, 2013 :
Was initially captivated by the choice of characters. Neanderthals are rarely -- if ever -- written about except by anthropologists. I was immediately drawn into the main character's world. Seeing the world through his eyes was a fascinating experience. The author successfully creates an intriguing and plausable tale about our distant relations. Archaeology is only now seeing how complex Neanderthal society was. Read the book in one "sitting." Couldn't put it down.
