Often overshadowed by his major novels, Fitzgerald's short stories
demonstrate the same originality and inventive range, as he chronicles with
wry and astute observation the temper of the hedonistic 1920s. Here is the
only critical edition of Tales of the Jazz Age available in paperback as
first published. It was Fitzgerald's second collection of stories, and it
contains some of the best of his short fiction, including May Day and
The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, two of his greatest, and The Curious
Case of Benjamin Button, recently adapted into a full-length movie. The
collection also highlights Fitzgerald's ability to work in a variety of
forms--parody, a one-act play, fantasy--with unrivalled versatility.
Fitzgerald scholar Jackson R. Bryer provides an in-depth appreciation of
the stories and examines the making of the volume and its reception. The
volume also includes an up-to-date bibliography, a chronology of the
author's life and work, and explanatory notes identifying contemporary
references and allusions. About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford
World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature

valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities,
