      Benjamin Button was born under most unusual circumstances. At the ripe old age of seventy with a long smoke-coloured beard he found himself uncomfortably squashed into a hospital crib yearning for a cigar rather than warm milk. As the world moved forward he lived his life in reverse becoming younger and stronger much to the embarrassment of his family. The reader is carried dramatically through the various stages of his eventful existence as he goes to war, enters the business world, falls in love, has a son, goes to college and eventually slides back into babyhood. Although written in the 1920s, the story is still relevant today mirroring our obsession with age and appearance and ridiculing the social norms that condition our lives. This strange and haunting fable is written in the evocative and carefully constructed prose that made Fitzgerald one of the memorable voices in American literature.

      In 2008 the story was made into a successful film by David Fincher starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.

      This volume is accompanied by notes and a wide range of learning activities to enable readers to enrich their vocabulary and practise language structures.
