About this book
This almost Poe-like short story about a baby who lives his life in reverse is the basis of a new Hollywood blockbuster starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. This edition ties-in and also contains 6 other short stories; a "Red Classics" edition is also published this month.
Full grown with a long, smoke-coloured beard, requiring the services of a cane and fonder of cigars than warm milk, Benjamin Button is a very curious baby indeed. And, as Benjamin becomes increasingly youthful with the passing years, his family wonders why he persists in the embarrassing folly of living in reverse.
