This collection of four of F. Scott Fitzgerald's most memorable short stories begins with "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," in which the protagonist is born an old man and ages in reverse until he becomes a baby, and then finally vanishes from the earth.
F. Scott Fitzgerald, one of the greatest American writers, is best known for The Great Gatsby, considered by many to be the most important novel of the twentieth century. But Fitzgerald also made his living as a short story writer, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Other Jazz Age Tales collects four of his best.
The title story is a fantasy tale about a man who is in his seventies at birth and progressively ages backwards. The other stories included in this collection are "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz," "Tarquin of Cheapside," and "O Russet Witch!"
