Publisher's Summary

F. Scott Fitzgerald makes antebellum Baltimore his setting for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a fantastical tale with some Poe-like overtones about a baby born at age 70 who then lives life in reverse, his hair turning "in the dozen years of his life from white to iron-gray, the network of wrinkles on his face becoming less pronounced". What ramifications that creates for Benjamin's relationship with his father first and then later with his wife and his own son makes for some fantastical situations.

F. Scott Fitzgerald takes us on another journey.

What a wonderful imagination F. Scott Fitzgerald had. This is such an original concept, told in a matter of fact way and narrated perfectly by Simon Brick.
A short story but well worth a listen.

This is officially my fav book

So good, if you know someone who has dementia this is for you, to me it explained it really well, even though it’s not about that.

curious.

I remember enjoying the film but remember very little from it back a decade or more ago at the cinema.
I really enjoyed this short tale. much more than Great Gatsby by the same author. it was short, sharp, sad and even haunting.
I really want to see the film again now.
