The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Read by by Alan Davis Drake

Here is F. Scott Fitzgerald's somewhat obscure short story "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" —obscure of course, until Mr. Button became conflated with Mr. Pitt.

Recorded here is the complete, original story as penned by Fitzgerald in the early 1920s, published originally in Colliers and finally collected in the popular Tales of the Jazz Age. One might call Benjamin Button an odd addition to the collection, as he was born in 1860, the year prior to Lincoln gaining his Presidency —a long way from the Jazz Age, which marked its begiining when Benjamin was 60... and was... well, you'll have to listen to the REAL story to find out what happened before Hollywood stepped in...

The story is prefaced by Fitzgerald's brief humorous comment hidden away in the book's table of contents. Here he establishes both the tale's humor and its pathos and in a further sense, grounds it in our growing tradition of American literary sensibilities with a nod to Mr. Clemens.
