I cannot stop mentioning things I learned from this book. It will make you rethink behaviors typically considered to be uniquely human in a new, more informed way.

Famous Men Who Never Lived is a literary sci-fi novel about refugees from one universe having to move on to another because of radiation poisoning. Only a certain amount of people were able to go, so the people who did move onward left potentially everyone they ever knew behind. Mainly this book focuses on a couple who want to salvage important bits of history from their universe.
