Description

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 the shifting morals that followed the First World War. The 1920s and '30s were 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.
