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.

The Little Book of Bonsai
Author: Kathy Hughes, Malcolm Hughes
Publisher: Mitchell Beazley
It is packed with myth-busting surprises, the first of which is that growing bonsai really isn't as hard as most people think. In fact, they are no more difficult to look after than other pot plants - and easier than many. This book, from bonsai enthusiasts, Malcolm and Kathy Hughes, makes the job even easier, breaking down the subject into three clear sections: Getting Started, Ongoing Care and Species Profiles. Jargon-free text and a plethora of photographs and diagrams make this the ideal book for complete novices, as well as a handy companion for more experienced growers. Whether you want to grow from seed or source an established plant, everything you need to know is contained in this guide, which, like bonsai themselves, is small but perfectly formed.
