Ancient of Days by Michael Bishop

Description: Told in the first-person narrative of Paul Loyd, divorced owner of a small town restaurant, Ancient of Days tells the story of a habiline man found wandering in a Georgia pecan orchard, a living descendant of a habiline tribe brought from Africa via Haiti as a slave. Paul's ex-wife, Ruth-Claire, takes in the living fossil, appropriately naming him Adam, and as an artist she discovers Adam's mute but vibrant artistic sensibility, falls in love with him, and marries him - much to Paul's confusion and dismay.
