"Everybody's youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness."

No writer has inspired me more than F.Scott Fitzgerald. I'm sure everyone has read The Great Gatsby, but one of his lesser known works is a book of short stories called Flappers and Philosophers. It's one of the greatest short story books of all time. The glitz and glamour along with the perils of living in the Roaring 20's are captured impeccably by his novels. And yes, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was written as a short story by F. Scott. His talent remains limitless.
