O Henry is for the intelligent listener
Entertaining, educational, witty.
The author because he challenges his listener with classic phrasing and descriptions of humanity that elevate and entertain.
When the waitress who couldn't tolerate men's eating habits finally realized what hunger was. The metaphor was marvelous.
O Henry routinely makes me laugh. His tongue is so far inside his cheek you'd have to be deaf to miss it.
The narrator is marvelous. I have sought Bob Thomley in other works just to hear his soothing voice. Perfect choice for O. Henry.
