Editorial Reviews

It's coming on winter in New York City, and Soapy is homeless. Desperate to find shelter, he decides to get himself thrown in jail, where he will have a warm place to sleep. But an increasingly humorous series of events - attempted vandalism, theft, and harassment - prove futile, thanks to the kindness of Soapy's intended victims. "The Cop and the Anthem" showcases O. Henry's mastery of the short story. Garrick Hagon and Liza Ross perform with a winning theatricality that evokes radio broadcasts of yesteryear, and their broad and booming styles underscore O. Henry's brilliant use of dramatic irony.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the More Classic American Short Stories collection.
Here are eight stories from master American writers of the 19th century. They vary from sinister tales by Ambrose Bierce - why is that window boarded up? - and a reflective moment in the life of a woman without children, but forced to look after children, to classic short stories by O. Henry and Stephen Crane. There is even an elegiac description of an eclipse by James Fenimore Cooper, author of The Last of the Mohicans. Read with sensitivity and skill by Garrick Hagon and Liza Ross.
