Description

Tales of the Jazz Age is a collection of eleven short stories by American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. Divided into three thematic parts, the anthology highlights Fitzgerald's signature fascination with wealth, tradition, and the frenetic youth culture that emerged in the post-war jazz age. In "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz," Fitzgerald satirizes the selfishness of the rich. "May Day" depicts a party at a popular club that turns into a political demonstration. The collection also features one of Fitzgerald's best-known stories, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." In this detour into fantasy, a man is born with the body and mind of an old man and ages backwards over the course of his life. Taken from the 1922 copyright edition, this unabridged collection features the striking prose and poignant themes that exemplify Fitzgerald's career.
