Tales of the Jazz Age

3.92 based on 2290 ratings & 133 reviews on


Published in 1922, the eleven Tales of the Jazz Age feature the flappers and lost young men of the period as well as a great variety of characters and scenes. Among them, the critically acclaimed novella 'May Day' contrasts drunken debutantes with a mob of war veterans battling socialists in the streets, 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button', filmed with Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton, is a fantasy about a man who ages in reverse, and 'A Diamond as Big as the Ritz' is a surreal fable of excess.

With an Afterword by Ned Halley.
