Tonight, we have a story about a man with an aging condition like no other. A story about the oddity of life and death and society in the late 1800’s. A story about what it could be like, if we aged backwards.
Proudly presenting “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, as part of his “Tales from the Jazz Age” novel, published in 1922. This original story is a little different to the blockbuster film with Brad Pitt as the titular role, and I do sincerely hope you enjoy it.
