First published in 1922, Tales of the Jazz Age is a collection of era-defining short works written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. These stories provide a good indication of Fitzgerald’s range as a writer, from the whimsical short story "Curious Case of Benjamin Button", to locally-flavored character studies, such as "The Jelly Bean", to small-scale epics that manage to mix family drama with metaphorical fantasy, such as "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz". Throughout, Fitzgerald's thematic interests are still detectable, including class insecurity, the corruptive power of wealth, and the shifting myth of the American dream. These stories serve as an essential companion to Fitzgerald's deeper fictional explorations of similar terrain, such as The Beautiful and The Damned and of course, The Great Gatsby.
