Prepare to enter a fascinating, primitive universe that goes back to the very beginning, to the story upon which Western civilization is based. Poetry and mystery go hand in hand in this transcendent novel about mankind, as never before imagined. Join Adam and Eve as they discover the world for themselves, feel their confusion and panic when they face punishment, and observe in awe as they experience the power to give life and, eventually, the ability to take it away to survive.

From internationally acclaimed poet and author Gioconda Belli comes a beguiling and soulfully rewarding novel—a parable that captures our own time and our own uncertain future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Creation Story Revamped A beautiful and poetic novel about the creation story. Belli reimagines the lives of Adam and Eve - their expulsion from Paradise, their introducton to hunger, thirst and sex, the pain of childbirth and the joy of children. My favourite thing about this book id Belli's descriptions for that many how and why questions one has about Adam and Eve. For example, Eve argues that Elokim ('God' or 'The Other') wanted her to eat the forbidden fruit, or else history would never have begun. Pg. 168-9 had the most beautiful and innocent description of sex.
