'This story was inspired by a remark of Mark Twain's to the effect that it was a pity that the best part of life came at the beginning and the worst part at the end. By trying the experiment upon only one man in a perfectly normal world I have scarcely given his ideas a fair trial.' Fitzgerald's thought-provoking tale, 'THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON' is a fantastical satire about aging. It is the strange and haunting story of Benjamin Button who is born as an old man and ages backwards so that at the beginning of his life he is an old man and at the end of his life he is a baby.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mark Caldwell

"The Philadelphia Inquirer"

More than enough to re-establish Fitzgerald as a master of the American short story.


Joseph Coates

"Chicago Tribune"

Bruccoli gives [us]...a virtually new and vastly amplified Fitzgerald.


Jay McInerney

"The New York Review of Books"

One pleasure of rereading Fitzgerald's stories now is to rediscover just how good some of them in fact are, and how brilliant a handful.


Leonard A. Podis

"The Cleveland Plain Dealer"

This is a valuable collection, whether one reads the stories to delight in Fitzgerald's style, to conjure up a lost era, to learn more about the career of a great American novelist, or simply to gain insight into the human condition.
