The World of O.Henry

O. Henry

More Information

Description:

If you think of classic literature as dry and dusty reading that you have to force yourself to get through, then prepare to change your mind. Not only are these stories witty and entertaining, they are laugh-out-loud funny to boot! Does the 300-year-old ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville really exist? And if he does, will the rambunctious Otis children scare him out of his wits? What deadly crime is foretold in Lord Arthur Savile’s palm, and who will be the victim? The answers lie in these hilarious tales. Each of O.Henry’s stories are original, intelligent and wonderfully written. His fiendishly clever prose, and deftly ironic humor begs to be read aloud, and is heightened by the incomparable Frank Muller’s dazzling narration. This collection includes: The Gift of the Magi, The Reformation of Calliope, One Thousand Dollars, The Pimienta Pancakes, The Badge of Policeman O’Roon, The Thanksgiving Day Gentlemen, Caught, The Whirligig of Life, Makes the Whole World Kin, The Cop and the Anthem, Memoirs of a Yellow Dog, The Last Leaf, A Newspaper Story, The Skylight Room, A Retrieved Reformation, The Rubaiyat of a Scotch Highball, The Passing of Black Eagle, The Green Door, Whistling Dick’s Christmas Stocking, The Furnished Room, Springtime A la Carte, and A Madison Square Arabian Night.
