In this witty, charming work Mark Twain retells the Garden of Eden story in the first person, presenting the separate perspectives in diary form of the legendary father and mother of the human race. In Twain’s version Adam comes across as the original couch potato, grumpily uninterested at first in the new long-haired creature with the different shape who keeps pestering him with her new ideas. Eve, by contrast, is the talkative, ever-curious experimenter whose inquisitive nature prompts her to name all the animals in the garden and leads her to the discovery of fire, among other things.

This is a funny and touching retelling of the age-old myth, full of Twain’s sarcastic humor, incisive intelligence, and subtle touches of pathos for the foibles of human nature.
