Summary
"Texas troubadour, convicted embezzler, and adopted New Yorker William Sidney Porter--better known as O. Henry--was one of the world's great storytellers. A master of cunning plots and a gifted humorist, he is best known today for his beloved tale "The Gift of the Magi." But O. Henry's palette of moods and methods was as expansive as his exuberant imagination. This Library of America volume offers a fresh look at the full range of his literary genius. Here are 101 stories, including such favorites as "The Ransom of Red Chief," "The Last of the Troubadours," and "The Cop and the Anthem," alongside lesser-known and previously uncollected stories, including three early tales published here for the first time. With full annotation and a newly researched chronology of Porter's life and career, this is a definitive edition for modern readers of a major American writer."--Publisher's description.
