O. Henry (pen name of William Sydney Porter) was called the American answer to Guy de Maupassant, but O. Henry stories were much more playful and optimistic. His stories are also well known for witty narration.

O. Henry's work provides one of the best examples of catching the entire flavor of an age. Whether roaming the cattle-lands of Texas, exploring the art of the "gentle grafter," or investigating the tensions of class and wealth in turn-of-the-century New York, O. Henry had an inimitable hand for isolating some element of society and describing it with an incredible economy and grace of language.

To O. Henry, everyone in New York was special in some way.

Some of his best known stories included in this collection are:
The Green Door - Rudolf Steiner is handed an advertisement for an establishment named The Green Door. He enters a green door where he finds himself deciding that the unexpected things in life are what make it so special...

The Gift of the Magi - about a young couple who are short of money but desperately want to buy each other Christmas gifts. Unbeknownst to Jim, Della sells her most valuable possession, her beautiful hair, in order to buy a platinum chain for Jim's watch...

The Cop and the Anthem - New York City hobo, Soapy, sets out to get arrested so he can avoid sleeping in the cold winter as a guest of the city jail...

After Twenty Years - set on a dark street in New York, focuses on a man named "Silky" Bob who is fulfilling an appointment made 20 years ago to meet his friend Jimmy at a restaurant...
