If you think of classic literature as dry and dusty reading that you have to force yourself to get through, then prepare to change your mind. Not only are these stories witty and entertaining, they are laugh-out-loud funny to boot! Does the 300-year-old ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville really exist? And if he does, will the rambunctious Otis children scare him out of his wits? What deadly crime is foretold in Lord Arthur Savile's palm, and who will be the victim? The answers lie in these hilarious tales. Each of O.Henry's stories are original, intelligent and wonderfully written. His fiendishly clever prose, and deftly ironic humor begs to be read aloud, and is heightened by the incomparable Frank Muller's dazzling narration.

Author Bio: O. Henry

O. Henry (1862–1910), born William Sydney Porter in Greensboro, North Carolina, was a short-story writer whose tales romanticized the commonplace, in particular, the lives of ordinary people in New York City. His stories often had surprise endings, a device that became identified with his name. He began writing sketches around 1887, and his stories of adventure in the Southwest United States and in Central America were immediately popular with magazine readers.
