      These five famous O’Henry stories deal with the lives of ordinary people in a constantly changing New York City. Romance and humour abound in the lives of “ordinary” folk.

      O. Henry has created characters that reveal in one way or another a true sense of dignity as they face their personal dramas. Love, forgiveness and tolerance flow through the heart of these stories and in the end there is always to be found poetic justice in the world. What has come to be known by readers worldwide as the “feel good” factor.

      O. Henry’s original style and irresistible humour together with his sympathetic portraits of the lost and the loved make him a joy to read. Although written at the beginning of the twentieth century, these stories still have something that touches our hearts and fills us with wonder at the generosity and surprising selflessness that can be found in the human spirit. As soon as you start reading them you will be captured and captivated right up to the unexpected conclusion. And with O. Henry there is always an unexpected twist, now known as an “O. Henryesque ending”.

      This volume is accompanied by notes and a wide range of learning activities to enable readers to enrich their vocabulary and practice language structures.
