Overview

In a career that lasted little more than a decade, O. Henry wrote more than two hundred short stories that have become staples of American literature. His slice-of-life tales of ordinary men and women struggling to cope with the incongruous circumstances of life often ended with an ironic or amusing twist that became his trademark.

This literary omnibus reprints all of the short fiction published in his thirteen story collections - masterpieces that run the emotional gamut from comedy to pathos and that include "The Gift of the Magi", "The Cop and the Anthem," "Mammon and Archer," "A Retrieved Reformation," and "The Ransom of Red Chief."
