Born with the appearance of a 70-year-old man, Benjamin Button grows physically younger with each passing year, until, in the end . . . Well, you'll just have to read it for yourself. A masterful story from the master storyteller of the Jazz Age. The author wrote, "This story was inspired by a remark of Mark Twain's to the effect that it was a pity that the best part of life came at the beginning and the worst part at the end. By trying the experiment upon only one man in a perfectly normal world I have scarcely given his idea a fair trial." But the author was wrong: It's a knockout of a story--recently released as a major motion picture starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.
