A great short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a baby born at the old age of 70something, only to curiously grow younger instead of older. He experiences everything backwards, his father soon becomes his brother and his wife soon becomes a grandmother and his own child soon becomes his father.

It was very entertaining and interesting to read this idea of a child being born as an old man and dying as an infant, unable to remember all the incredible things he has learned in his life.
