The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Other Jazz Age Stories
B/W Dedication Page
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
Editor/Introduction: Patrick O'Donnell
Notes by: Patrick O'Donnell
The inspiration for the major motion picture starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett plus eighteen other stories by the beloved author of The Great Gatsby in the title story, a baby born in 1860 begins life as an old man and proceeds to age backward. F. Scott Fizgerald 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. 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.
