Gates of Eden is a collection of short stories written by Ethan Coen, first published in November 1998. The title comes from one of the stories in the book with reference to the biblical Garden of Eden. The stories within the book range from traditional fiction (both of third and first person) to stories formatted more like a script.
While some of the stories are similar in format or theme, the stories as a whole are of varying length, do not follow a central theme, and are generally not related.
