"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is a short story first published in 1922 in Collier’s Magazine. It breaks from Fitzgerald’s traditional style in that it is a story of fantasy – a man is born old and ages backwards in the course of his life. Fitzgerald himself called it the "funniest story ever written". When "Benjamin Button" was anthologized in Fitzgerald’s collection Tales of the Jazz Age, Fitzgerald wrote that he was inspired to write it by a remark made by Mark Twain: "It is a pity that the best part of life comes at the beginning, and the worst part at the end." "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" stayed under the radar of popularity until 2008, when director David Fincher made a film of the story starring Brad Pitt. The script made major changes from the original story, but hopefully it inspired you to read "Benjamin Button," the original.
