    Title: 100 SELECTED STORIES
    Author: HENRY O
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    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.

    Stories include:

    The Gift of the Magi
    The Cop and the Anthem
    The Last Leaf
    The Duplicity of Hargreaves
    A Retrieved Reformation
    And many more...
