Overview: 100 Selected Stories

100 Selected Stories:Wordsworth Classics is a collection of 100 short stories by William Sydney Porter, one of the most-loved short story writers of America. William Sydney Porter is better known by his pen name - O Henry. The stories provide a glimpse into the New Yorkers' lives, during the early 20th century. This book was published in 1995, by Wordsworth Editions Ltd. This book is available in paperback binding. Some of the other well known O Henry books are Cabbages and Kings, Best Short Stories and Tales of O. Henry.

The stories have been constructed around some everyday characters, starting from sales girls and store clerks to millionaires, thieves, policemen and fraudsters. His stories are a delightful mix of the different elements of society and simple yet surprising plots, at the same time. O Henry chronicles the lives of New Yorkers, their struggles and their underlying values, the choices they make, the predicaments they face and their fates. Stories contained in the book are The Gift of the Magi, An Unfinished Story, The Lost Blend, Telemachus: Friend, A Service of Love, Springtime a la Carte, The Dream and more. While one story portrays how a couple sacrifices their most treasured belongings to bring in precious Christmas gifts for each other, another is about a saleswoman's search for a wealthy husband. Some of the other stories are based on love and romance. This is a must read for all book lovers and you can order a copy of the same from websites, which sell books online and are listed on

For the twist-in-the-tale endings of his stories, O Henry is considered as the American counterpart of Guy de Maupassant. An episodic film was made based on five of his short stories and a prestigious award named after him, is given to the best short story writer in the US, every year.
