A collection of short stories from F. Scott Fitzgerald - including 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button', 'May Day' and 'The Diamond as Big as the Ritz'.

The Jazz Age. A time of opulence and excess. Of boredom and glamour. Of shifting morals and post-War rules. Heady decades captured perfectly by Fitzgerald in this collection of short stories.

From The Curious Case of Benjamin Button to The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, this collection takes the reader through the turmoil of the early 20th century, when a generation of young people cast off the weight and tradition of the past and embraced the moment.

About the Author

Born in 1896, Fitzgerald was considered a member of the 'Lost Generation', along with Steinbeck, T.S. Eliot and Waldo Peirce. His novels epitomize the Jazz Age - a term he coined himself - and The Great Gatsby is often considered as 'the great American novel'.

The collection shows the heights that Fitzgerald could reach, when money problems, alcoholism and tragedy were at bay GUARDIAN
