If you loved the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, then you should read the short story-because apart from the title and the fact that Benjamin ages backwards, they are nothing alike. So it... More > saves you from having to decide whether you prefer the book or the movie. In the story version by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Benjamin Button is born an old man who fancies smoking his father's pipe and reading encyclopedias rather than playing with toys. As he gets younger he reaches the right age to start working, then to go to college, then to fight in the war. Finally, when he's grown (emm, shrunk) to a baby, Benjamin enjoys playing with children's toys. In the book version you don't get to see Brad Pitt, but you do get to enjoy some fantastic Jazz Age prose from the master Fitzgerald.< Less

"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... More > fantasy – a man is born old and ages backwards in the course of his life. Fitzgerald himself called it the "funniest story ever written".

Several weeks after completing it, I discovered an almost identical plot in Samuel Butler's "Note-books." The story was published in "Collier's" last summer and provoked this startling letter from an anonymous admirer in Cincinnati: "Sir-- I have read the story Benjamin Button in Colliers and I wish to say that as a short story writer you would make a good lunatic I have seen many peices of cheese in my life but of all the peices of cheese I have ever seen you are the biggest peice.
