Liebe auf den ersten Blick war es weiß Gott nicht – so lässt sich der Beginn der Romanze zwischen Adam und Eva beschreiben, wenn wir uns nicht auf die Genesis, sondern auf die Tagebücher berufen, die Mark Twain (1835–1910) seinen biblischen Protagonisten in die Federn diktierte. Mit ebenso humor- wie liebevoller Nachsicht verhandelt der weltberühmte amerikanische Autor hier die keineswegs paradiesischen Unzulänglichkeiten der Geschlechter am Beispiel des ersten Traumpaars der Geschichte. Dass die beiden schließlich doch noch zueinanderfinden, ist ein seltenes Glück für die Menschheit – und für den Leser!

EXTRACTS FROM ADAM'S DIARY (1904) and EVE'S DIARY (1906) are essentially send-ups of the scripture, in which Twain parodied Genesis, the parables of creation and original sin, and Eve's role in the fall of humankind. In EXTRACTS FROM ADAM'S DIARY, published with Fred Strothmann's humorous cartoons of supposedly ancient stone carvings on every left-hand page, Twain playfully established Niagara Falls Park as the setting of the Garden of Eden, "the honeymoon capital of the world." EVE'S DIARY, accompanied by the stunning line drawings of Lester Ralph, was Twain's moving eulogy to his wife, Livy, who died the previous year. The grief-stricken Samuel Clemens, in a letter to his brother-in-law, Charles Langdon, wrote: "I am a man without a country. Wherever Livy was that was my country." Similarly Adam's tribute to Eve at the end of Eve's Diary reads, "Wheresoever she was, there was Eden." Eve's story is tender throughout and focuses on the more humorous aspects of Adam and Eve's relationship and eventual "marriage." Like Adam's story it lacks the darker implications of the other biblical pieces Twain wrote during the last decade of his life.

In the first play, "HOW I EDITED AN AGRICULTURAL PAPER" the Narrator, a young journalist, demonstrates one way of increasing a newspaper's circulation, with entertaining and devastating results! "MRS. McWILLIAMS AND THE LIGHTNING" describes the absurd lengths to which a long-suffering and good-natured husband will go in order to allay his wife's irrational fears of thunder. As for the third play, "EXTRACTS FROM THE DIARIES OF ADAM AND EVE," Mark Twain wrote "EXTRACTS FROM ADAM'S DIARY" in 1893, while "EVE'S DIARY" did not appear until twelve years later. In this adaptation we follow, with the author's gentle humor and profound insight, the couple's progression from exasperated tolerance to a solid and enduring love.
