The inspiration for the major motion picture starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchettaplus 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 aa generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken.a Perhaps nowhere in American fiction has this aLost Generationa been more vividly preserved than in Fitzgeraldas short fiction. Spanning the early twentieth-century American landscape, this original collection captures, with Fitzgeraldas signature blend of enchantment and disillusionment, America during the Jazz Age.
