THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON AND OTHER STORIES BY FITZGERALD

by | Read by Scott Brick, Grover Gardner, Ray Porter, Jeff Cummings, Paul Michael Garcia

Classics • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1922

The title story in this collection is Fitzgerald's comic masterpiece, in which a baby is born at age 70 and proceeds through his life growing younger. Scott Brick narrates this marvelous story with enthusiasm, using a variety of subtle voices for the different characters. His reading highlights the astonishing aspects of this situation, as well as the underlying humor of the tale. In "Babylon Revisited," Ray Porter's understated reading expresses the nostalgia and regret of Charlie Wales, who returns to Paris after the onset of the Depression and reflects on the way he lived and flaunted his wealth in his halcyon days. Three other stories, "The Lost Decade," "Three Hours Between Planes," and "The Bridal Party," round out this sample of Fitzgerald's short fiction.
