Summary
"In the title story - the inspiration for the major motion picture The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett - a baby born in 1860 begins life as an old man and proceeds to age backward. F. Scott Fitzgerald hinted at this kind of inversion when he called his era "a generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken." Perhaps nowhere in American fiction has this "Lost Generation" been more vividly preserved than in Fitzgerald's short fiction." "Gathered here are all of the stories in Fitzgerald's first two collections, including "The Ice Palace," "Bernice Bobs Her Hair," and "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz." Spanning the early twentieth-century American landscape, this original collection captures, with Fitzgerald's signature blend of enchantment and disillusionment, America during the Jazz Age."--book jacket
