Summary:

In this brilliantly inventive collection of stories, the author captures the disparate lives of the residents of Manhattan's West 89th Street from marriages, car accidents, love affairs, and adoptions.

F. Scott Fitzgerald, one of the greatest American writers, is best known for The Great Gatsby, considered by many to be the most important novel of the twentieth century. But Fitzgerald also made his living as a short story writer, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Other Jazz Age Tales collects four of his best.

The title story is a fantasy tale about a man who is in his seventies at birth and progressively ages backwards. The other stories included in this collection are "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz," "Tarquin of Cheapside," and "O Russet Witch!"

    I really enjoyed the three stories by Fitzgerald featured in this audiobook. I read the Great Gatsby when I was younger and always wanted to read more from this author. The narrator was not boring and held my interest. I didn't find myself dozing at any point.
