Extracts From Adams Diary " NOTE.--I translated a portion of this diary some years ago, and a friend of mine printed a few copies in an incomplete form, but the public never got them. Since then I have deciphered some more of Adams hieroglyphics, and think he has now become sufficiently important as a public character to justify this publication.--M. T." Eves Diary is a comic short story by Mark Twain. It was first published in the 1905 Christmas issue of the magazine Harpers Bazaar, and in book format in June 1906 by Harper and Brothers publishing house. It is written in the style of a diary kept by the first woman in the Judeao-Christian creation story, Eve, and is claimed to be "translated from the original MS." The "plot" of this novel is the first-person account of Eve from her creation up to her burial by, her mate, Adam, including meeting and getting to know Adam, and exploring the world around her, Eden. The story then jumps 40 years into the future after the Fall and expulsion from Eden. It is one of a series of books Twain wrote concerning the story of Adam and Eve, including Extracts from Adams Diary, That Day In Eden, Eve Speaks, s Soliloquy, and the Autobiography of Eve.
