O Henry |100 Selected Stories

9.90 лв.
  • With a new Introduction by Cedric Watts, M.A., Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of English, University of Sussex

    This selection of a hundred of O. Henry's succinct tales displays the range, humor and humanity of a perennially popular short-story writer.

    Here Henry gives a richly colorful 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 famous 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…
