Fitzgerald's 1922 collection isn't his strongest work, but it does contain gems like "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz." This edition also sports several additional stories not included in the original, such as "Diamond Dick, "The Third Casket," and "The Unspeakable Egg," plus a scholarly introduction and other goodies by editor West. Nice if you can afford it.

The art was nice, as was the story written. It was indeed a very interesting idea, but one I’m glad will never happen to an actual person – old at birth, baby at death. It would be a horrible life, but it made for a great (though sad) original story.
The one stand-out in this collection is the Curious Tale of Benjamin Button. This short story could easily be written by one of today's fantasy fiction writers. Since these tales are mostly novellas, each could be read in the space of a Sunday afternoon. I'd recommend this collection of stories to readers who like some sophistication in their pleasure reaading.
