Housewife, a tramp, a lawyer, a waitress, an actress - ordinary people
living ordinary lives in New York at the beginning of this century. The
city has changed greatly since that time, but its people are much the
same. Some are rich, some are poor, some are happy, some are sad, some
have found love, some are looking for love.
O. Henry's famous short stories - sensitive, funny, sympathetic - give
us vivid pictures of the everyday lives of these New Yorkers.
