& quot;A generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken. & quot; Thus F Scott Fitzgerald summed up his age. Perhaps nowhere in American fiction is this & quot;Lost Generation & quot; more vividly preserved than in Fitzgerald's own short fiction.

In the title story of this collection by one of America's greatest writers, a baby born in 1860 begins life as an old man and proceeds to age backward. F. Scott Fizgerald hinted at this kind of inversion when he called his era "a generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken." Perhaps nowhere in American fiction has this "Lost Generation" been more vividly preserved than in Fitzgerald's short fiction. Spanning the early twentieth-century American landscape, this original collection captures, with Fitzgerald's signature blend of enchantment and disillusionment, America during the Jazz Age.
