The stories are set in the fictional country of Anchuria in Central America, a banana republic where larceny is rampant and revolution lurks in every impoverished back alley. O. Henry offers a cutting satire of contemporary politics and prejudices. Nevertheless, an essential middle-class morality prevails, in which lovers are reunited, poverty obliterated, character rewarded, and sentiment satisfied.

I'm crazy for O. Henry and Lloyd James makes this book even better by his performance. You won't be disappointed for a minute.

The story was of some interest. However, the performer often read in a rather halting, unsure fashion which made listening quite awkward at times. He did excellent accents for the different characters, but mispronounced some common words and, as I said, did not properly convey the meaning of many phrases. Hence the 3-star rating.
