Book cover
By: (1862-1910)

"Waifs and Strays" by O. Henry is a collection of short stories that highlight the struggles and joys of everyday life. Each story presents a unique character facing their own set of challenges, whether it be poverty, loneliness, or heartbreak. O. Henry's writing style is engaging and full of wit, making each story a quick and enjoyable read.

One of the things that stood out to me about this collection was the way O. Henry expertly weaves themes of hope and resilience throughout each story. Despite the hardships the characters face, there is always a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel, showing that even in the darkest of times, there is still room for joy and redemption.

Overall, "Waifs and Strays" is a heartfelt and thought-provoking collection of stories that will resonate with readers of all ages. O. Henry's ability to capture the complexities of human emotions and experiences is truly a testament to his skills as a storyteller. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a touching and poignant read.

Book Description:
These 12 O. Henry stories all deal with waifs and strays in one way or another; people who have somehow become adrift in the current of life. Will they find their way on their own or be helped by kind hearted folk or perhaps, stay a waif and stray, somehow outside the normal life of society? All naturally have the wonderful O. Henry beautiful way with words and people. So if you are in the mood to enjoy some sensuous sounds and convoluted flowing phrases unique to William Sydney Porter, give these a listen. And of course the endings cannot ever be predicted. Ever!
