Publisher's Summary

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 20th 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 soon to be a major motion picture starring Brad Pitt and directed by David Fincher, the same team that made Seven and Fight Club. It is a fantasy story about a man who is in his 70s 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!"

Great Stories - Akward Recording

The short stories are well read and written. They are enjoyable. The low rating comes from the recording itself. There are no division markers between the three stories, which can be a bit confusing. If you are listening to there stories for the first time, it is hard to determine where one ends and another begins. Otherwise, I throughly enjoyed Fitzgerald's work.
