O. Henry is the acknowledged master of the short story form and the four stories told here are charming, witty and shrewd in their observation. In nearly every New York story, someone has, however shy and hidden, the desire to create. Love, forgiveness, and tolerance run like gold threads through the fabric of the stories. The stories are models of compression, plot, and characterization. O. Henry has had many imitators but no equals. Bostonian actor Ed Bishop reads with great understanding and sensitivity.Includes "A Cosmopolitan in a Cafe", "The Cop and the Anthem", "The Last Leaf", and "A Technical Error".
