Product Description

0. Henry was an Amercian writer who was a master of the short story genre. His stories were known for their wit, wordplay, and for having an unexpected twist at the end.
He was famous for his warm characterizations of awkward and difficult situations and the creative ways people find to resolve them. His most famous short story, The Gift of the Magi, epitomizes this style. 0. Henry was born William Sydney Porter. He started writing stories while serving a prison sentence and published his first twelve stories while still in prison. In order to keep his real identity private, he took on the pseudonym of 0. Henry, which he maintained throughout his writing career. Though he died atthe age of just 48, he had written more than 600 stories by then. This collection includes some of his outstanding stories, such as The Gift of the Magi, The Cop and the Anthem, The Skylight Room, and Memoirs of a Yellow dog. He was a gifted short story writer who left us a rich legacy of great stories to enjoy.

About Author

Handpicked stories by four master craftsmen – Guy de Maupassant, Anton Chekhov, O Henry and Saki – will not only give you a taste of their contemporary societies and cultures, but also take you on an adventure of a lifetime. Their extraordinary stories are a mixture of tragedy and humorous satire, irony and the macabre, in which the stupidities and hypocrisy of conventional society are viciously pilloried. You will meet the common folks who love to spend evenings in the company of girls, and you will also meet couples from humble origins working hard to repay a debt which was wrongly assumed in the first place. You can run into love seeking you in some stories, and destiny waiting to change the course of lives in others. The heady mix of humour, satire and drama makes these stories an essential cocktail of emotions.
