Summary
Published in 1922, the eleven Tales of the Jazz Age feature the flappers and lost young men of the period as well as a great variety of characters and scenes. Among them, the critically acclaimed novella "May Day" contrasts drunken debutantes with a mob of war veterans battling socialists in the streets, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", filmed with Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton, is a fantasy about a man who ages in reverse, and "A Diamond as Big as the Ritz" is a surreal fable of excess
