The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Six Other Stories
In this imaginative fable of ageing and the other stories collected here, F. Scott Fitzgerald displays his unmatched gift as a writer of short stories.
This collection includes 7 stories:
* The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: Full grown with a long, smoke-coloured beard, requiring the services of a cane and fonder of cigars than warm milk, Benjamin Button is a very curious baby indeed. And, as Benjamin becomes increasingly youthful with the passing years, his family wonders why he persists in the embarrassing folly of living in reverse.
* Head and Shoulders
* The Cut-Glass Bowl: An ill-meant gift haunts a family's misfortunes.
* The Four Fists: A man's life shaped by a series of punches to his face.
* May Day
* 'O Russet Witch'
* Crazy Sunday
