Summary

The American master of the short story presents twenty-two tales, including “A Retrieved Reformation,” that twist and turn in unexpected ways.   One of the most popular authors of his day, O. Henry penned stories that surprised and delighted his many fans. His characters were people whom readers knew from places they recognized, everyday folks who sometimes found themselves in sticky, shocking, and sobering situations. This volume includes many of O. Henry’s most recognizable works, including “A Retrieved Reformation,” which was inspired by his own experience being imprisoned. It was adapted into a Broadway play and subsequently three film versions.   “The story has its gentle humor and is easy to understand, which I believe, can be suitable for many types of readers from booklovers to new readers. Moreover, anyone who wants to find a story with surprising plot, or twisted ending then ‘A Retrieved Reformation’ can be the right choice.” —Write to Interact on “A Retrieved Reformation”
