Combined in one volume these whimsical diaries are at bottom both an argument for women's equality and an irreverent look at conventional religion.

Written around the turn of the century, Twain cleverly and irreverently imagines what Adam and Eve would've written about in the garden. Interestingly enough, God is never mentioned. This is part of Oxford's complete series of his work and includes scholarly notes and an introduction by Ursula K. Le Guin. The illustrations for Eve's Diary, which depict a naturally naked Eve, caused some controversy.

I was surprised that Mark Twain wrote this given his other works I read. I enjoyed reading it though, and I thought the last part with Adam in Central Park was touching. Reading the background info on the book also gives a alternative perspective on the book.
