Tales of the Jazz Age is Fitzgerald's second collection of short stories, published shortly after his second novel The Beautiful and the Damned; as per Scribner's sales tactics, each collection of short stories was scheduled to follow the publication of a novel, with the goal of the short story collection to feed off of the popularity of its companion novel. Tales of the Jazz Age includes some of the author's most well-known short stories, organized thematically into three sections: "My Last Flappers," "Fantasies," and "Unclassified Masterpieces." Specifically, it includes 11 stories: "The Jelly-Bean," "The Camel's Back," "May Day," "Porcelain and Pink," "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz," "Tarquin of Cheapside," "Oh, Russet Witch!," "The Lees of Happiness," "Mr. Icky," "Jemina," and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," which served as the basis for the 2008 film starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.
