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.

Proceeds from sale of this title go to Reach Out and Read, an innovative literacy advocacy organization.

    " This was a 5 star book up until the last several stories which seemed completely out of place. Definitely an excellent read. "

    " "It was an age of miracles, it was an age of art, it was an age of excess, and it was an age of satire." "
