Description: A collection of 100 of author's finest stories; it describes life south of the Rio Grande and chronicles the activities and concerns of 'the four million' ordinary citizens who inhabited turn-of-the-century New York.
Synopsis: With a new Introduction by Professor Cedric Watts, M.A., Ph.D.This selection of a hundred of O. Henry's succinct tales displays the range, humour and humanity of a perennially popular short-story writer.Here Henry gives a richly colourful and exuberantly entertaining panorama of social life, ranging from thieves to tycoons, from the streets of New York to the prairies of Texas.These stories are famed for their `trick endings' or `twists in the tail': repeatedly the plot twirls adroitly, compounding ironies. Indeed, O. Henry's cunning plots surpass those of the ingenious rogues he creates. His style is genial, lively and witty, displaying a virtuoso's command of language and allusion.This great collection offers delights for the mind, imagination and emotions.
