No writer portrayed America's Roaring Twenties as vividly as F. Scott Fitzgerald, and his stories seem as fresh today as they did nearly a century ago. F. Scott Fitzgerald: Classic Works features two novels—This Side of Paradise and The Beautiful and Damned—and 19 short stories, including the classics “Bernice Bobs Her Hair,” “The Diamond as Big as the Ritz,” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”
