The more than 600 stories written by O. Henry provided an embarrassment of riches for the compilers of this volume. The final selection of the thirty-eight stories in this collection offers for the reader's delight those tales honored almost unanimously by anthologists and those that represent, in variety and balance, the best work of America's favorite storyteller. They are tales in his most mellow, humorous, and ironic moods. They give the full range and flavor of the man born William Sydney Porter but known throughout the world as O. Henry, one of the great masters of the short story. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.

O Henry's one of the classic American writers I'm discovering for the first time in middle age. It's definitely worth reading his four or five best stories, but one can only pull off so many "surprise endings." Didn't read the entire book.
