Benjamin Button is born as an old man, but unlike most people, he grows younger over time. As he grows up, he encounters prejudice, shock, and delight as he seeks to live an ordinary life. Touching and profound, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is a uniquely moving meditation on the experience of growing up in a world that struggles to accept the unfamiliar.
This collection also includes several of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s stories set in the Roaring Twenties, which he termed the “Jazz Age,” such as “The Jelly Bean,” “May Day,” and “The Diamond as Big as the Ritz.” Ranging from the farcical to the insightful, Fitzgerald presents an enlightening portrait of 1920s America in these stories while always remembering that the first duty of a writer is to entertain.
