More > "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". Fitzgerald's introduction captures the spirit of the book fairly: 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.
