Publisher's Summary

Tales of the Jazz Age is a collection of short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald, one of the most well-known Jazz Age writers whose works have stood the test of time. These stories are separated into several themes, ranging from the fantastical to the more realistic.

This collection includes 11 short stories, including:

"The Curious Tale of Benjamin Button": A man is born with the appearance of an old man, fully capable of speech and developed thought. He ages backwards and has to live a very different life dealing with the odd and disappointing aspects of his predicament.

"The Diamond as Big as the Ritz": A man learns of the existence of a diamond bigger than a hotel building. This diamond causes problems for the family who discovered it, as they must keep its existence a secret to keep demand for diamonds high.

"The Jelly-Bean": Jim Powell has dreams of living a life full of dancing, music, and love, but his dreams are dashed by the consequences of alcoholism and greed.

"Mr. Icky": A short play in which a man tells a reflective story about his life and the morals of the era while meeting a man who wants to marry his daughter.

The stories in this collection are excellent examples of the writing skills of F. Scott Fitzgerald and are entertaining with a diverse subject matter. Tales of the Jazz Age is a great escape into the wild and vibrant Jazz Age era.
