Written in the same vein as “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,”
“The Diamond as Big as the Ritz” is one of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s most
imaginative shorter works.
John T. Unger is a young southerner who goes to Montana for
summer vacation with a wealthy college classmate. But the classmate’s family
proves to be much more than simply wealthy—they
own a mountain made entirely of one solid diamond. And they’ve gone to dreadful
lengths to conceal their secret, which means that John could be in danger.
But the family also has a daughter—the lovely Kismine—and
with her help, John may yet escape the fate her family has meted out to all
their other guests so far.
