Compliments of the Season- O. Henry

bookCoverFor

Beskrivning

Fuzzy the homeless drunkard is infamous. What most people aren't aware of though, is his kind heart. When he finds a tattered rag doll lying in the snow, he realises that it belongs to a spoiled child living in a nearby mansion, and promptly goes to return it. He is unaware of the reward that awaits him, and he is even less aware of the three street gangsters watching his every move, desperate to claim the reward for themselves. A morality tale with a twist, 'Compliments of the Season' is O. Henry's exploration of just how small the world is, and how people from completely different walks of life can find themselves entangled.

William Sidney Porter (1862-1919), known simply as O. Henry, was a prolific American author of humorous literary pieces. His fame came exceptionally quickly and he became a bestselling author of short story collections. The most notable of which being "Cabbages and Kings", "The Voice of the City", and "Strictly Business." In fact, his legacy was so great that the ‘O. Henry Award’ was established to celebrate the best short stories. His vivid storytelling is perfect for fans of Roald Dahl.
