Encompassing the very best of F. Scott Fitzgerald's short fiction, this collection spans his career, from the early stories of the glittering Jazz Age, through the lost hopes of the thirties, to the last, twilight decade of his life. It brings together his most famous stories, including 'The Diamond as Big as the Ritz', a fairy tale of unlimited wealth; the sad and hilarious stories of Hollywood hack Pat Hobby; 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button', his extraordinary fable of a man who lives his life backwards; and 'The Lost Decade', written in Fitzgerald's last years.
Concerned with the dreams of youth, the power of money and the ravages of success, these are all unforgettable stories that defined a generation.
