This collection of stories, originally published in 1922, is the basis for an
upcoming major motion picture starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.

F. Scott Fitzgerald makes anti-bellum Baltimore his setting for "The Curious Case of
Benjamin Button," a fantastical tale with some Poe-like overtones about a baby born at
age seventy 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."

This collection also includes "The Lost Decade," "Three Hours between Planes," "The Bridal
Party," and "Babylon Revisited."
