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[1] 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, Adams Soliloquy, and the Autobiography of Eve. Eves Diary has a lighter tone than the others in the series, as Eve has a strong appreciation for beauty and love. The book may have been written as a posthumous love-letter to Mark Twains wife Olivia Langdon Clemens, or Livy, who died in June 1904, just before the story was written. Mark Twain is quoted as saying, Eves Diary is finished — Ive been waiting for her to speak, but she doesnt say anything more. The story ends with Adams speaking at Eves grave, Wherever she was, there was Eden.
