One of F Scott Fitzgerald bestseller, this book is an ahead-of-its-time witty satire about man’s primal wish of staying young. Only, instead of ‘staying’ young, Mr. Button keeps ‘growing’ young. Beginning as an age-worn man, his age slowly comes down as he goes to war, starts a business, finds love, goes to college and school and then ends up with his nurse.
