100 Selected Stories brings together some of the most entertaining short stories written by O. Henry. His true to his trademark twist-in-the-plot style endings, never fail to surprise his readers. These stories, woven around a fascinating mix of everyday characters including tycoons, millionaires, swindlers, thieves, store clerks and sales girls, allow a glimpse into the life of New Yorkers and other places during the early 1900s. In 100 Selected Stories, O. Henry paints a vivid picture of New York City, through the lives and minds of the characters, their struggles, their predicaments, and the choices they make, revealing their hidden innate values. A few of the stories are love stories in which the boy and the girl meet under somewhat unexpected circumstances. In another story, a woman working in a departmental store seeking a wealthy husband turns down a prospective suitor after hearing his plans for their honeymoon, concluding mistakenly that he is not as per her expectations. Another story involves the character of Jeff Peters, a crook with a conscience who commits frauds, but later tries to compensate his victims who got shortchanged. 100 Selected Stories is a collection of highly imaginative, witty, and ironic tales with cunning plots. Some of the stories in the book are The Lost Blend, Brickdust Row, The Cop and The Anthem, An Unfinished Story, The Pendulum, Between Rounds, and The Gift Of The Magi.
