F. Scott Fitzgerald's second collection of short stories contains some of his best-known tales of the glittering era he gave a name to. Published in 1922,Tales of the Jazz Agefeatured not only the flappers and lost young men Fitzgerald had made his name with, but a greater variety of characters and scenes. The critically admired novella ""May Day"" contrasts its drunken debutantes with a mob of war veterans battling socialists in the streets. Here, too, are several imaginative stories that Fitzgerald described as ""fantasies,"" including ""The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,"" about a man who ages in reverse, and ""A Diamond as Big as the Ritz,"" a surreal fable about the excesses of greed.Tales of the Jazz Agenot only furthered Fitzgerald's reputation as a master storyteller but cemented his place as the spokesman of an age.
