Diaries of Adam and Eve and Other Stories

Diaries of Adam and Eve and Other Stories by MARK TWAIN

136 x 216 x 7mm

""Good deal of fog this morning. I do not go out in the fog myself,"" notes Adam in his diary, adding, ""The new creature does. It goes out in all weathers. And talks. It used to be so pleasant and quiet here.""Adam has a lot to learn about Eve, and even more from her, as she names the animals, discovers fire, and introduces all manner of innovations to their garden home. Mark Twain's ""translation"" of the diaries of the first man and woman offers a humorous ""he said/she said"" narrative of biblical events. The great American storyteller found comfort and inspiration in the company of women, and his irreverent look at conventional religion is also a thoughtful - and humorous - argument for gender equality.In addition to the tales from Eden, this collection features five short stories: ""The $30,000 Bequest,"" ""Was It Heaven? Or Hell?"" ""Edward Mills and George Benton: A Tale,"" ""The Californian's Tale,"" and ""A Monument to Adam.""
