The story of Creation is one of the best known of all time, yet little is ever made of the experiences of the first man and woman in that Edenic garden, save for their fateful beguilement by the serpent. In The Diary of Adam and Eve, master storyteller Mark Twain hilariously recreates those very first days, and reveals that the garden was by no means free of that gender battle that has inspired so many later writings. He portrays Adam as something of a recluse, a man who enjoys his own company and is ill prepared for the arrival of Eve, a talkative, emotional and highly charged female. Yet, in time, and after many moments of conflict -- some humorous, some of their immense frustration -- they gradually learn to live together and come to realise that men and women can, in fact, exist in harmony.
Written in diary form, this is an ingenious, witty and ultimately delightful retelling of the dawn of human creation with many a grain of truth for today's gender disputes. It is presented here with six additional pieces creating a unique collection of Twain's Adamic tales.
