F. Scott Fitzgerald, the great chronicler of America's Jazz Age, captured the glittering melancholy of an era uncannily like our own.

Among his finest achievements are his brilliant short stories, which come to resonant life in this superb collection by Caedmon, featuring readings by an extraordinary cast of stage and screen stars.
