The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: And Two Other Stories

Penguin UK
3

Born an old man, Benjamin Button lived a very curious life, backwards

When Benjamin Button's father arrives at hospital he is surprised and ashamed to find his new baby boy is a weathered, aged man, for all appearances no younger than seventy years old. As time goes by, young Benjamin comes to no longer require a cane, his hair ceases to be grey, his limbs become less frail, his wrinkles less deep, but still the world around him fails to come to terms with his oddness, as he ages towards infancy and beyond ...

This remarkable, imaginative tale is here accompanied by a story of the desperate measures required by limitless wealth, and another about the lengths (and cuts) a girl is willing to go to for popularity.

Includes A Diamond as Big as the Ritz and Bernice Bobs Her Hair.
