Description
The inspiration for the film of the same name with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1922 short story is presented here in a slim standalone edition with a reading group guide. In 1860 Baltimore, Benjamin Button is born looking and talking like a 70-year-old. He grows ever younger, running his father's business and marrying while gray and mature, then becoming restless and going off to war, returning to a college career, and faltering as he loses his adult strengths. Devolving into a child and then an infant, his memories slip away in the arms of his nurse. A satirical fantasy with a subtle wit, Fitzgerald's story is suffused with his sharp social insight.
