Audible Editor Reviews

Ed Bishop’s wry delivery helps to accentuate the wit and observational gifts of The New York Stories of O. Henry.

O. Henry was known for his sentimental tales and twist endings, but these stories also demonstrate his elegant, conversational style and his concise evocation of life in the Big Apple at the turn of the 20th century. In one of them, The Cop and the Anthem, a homeless man tries to find shelter by trying (and failing) to get arrested. In another, The Last Leaf, a woman dying in Greenwich Village is saved by an aging artist’s final masterpiece.

Bishop performs these stories with a slight New York accent and has the timing and bemused tone of a natural storyteller.

Publisher's Summary

O. Henry is the acknowledged master of the short story form and the four stories told here are charming, witty and shrewd in their observation. In nearly every New York story, someone has, however shy and hidden, the desire to create. Love, forgiveness, and tolerance run like gold threads through the fabric of the stories. The stories are models of compression, plot, and characterization. O. Henry has had many imitators but no equals. Bostonian actor Ed Bishop reads with great understanding and sensitivity.

Includes "A Cosmopolitan in a Cafe", "The Cop and the Anthem", "The Last Leaf", and "A Technical Error".
