The title story is soon to be a major motion picture starring Brad Pitt and directed by David Fincher, the same team that made Seven and Fight Club. It is a fantasy story about a man who is in his 70s at birth and progressively ages backwards.
The other stories included in this collection are "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz", "Tarquin of Cheapside", and "O Russet Witch!"

The short stories are well read and written. They are enjoyable. The low rating comes from the recording itself. There are no division markers between the three stories, which can be a bit confusing. If you are listening to there stories for the first time, it is hard to determine where one ends and another begins. Otherwise, I throughly enjoyed Fitzgerald's work.
