It's debatable whether the seven short stories in this collection truly constitute the "best" of O. Henry's hundreds of published works, but that debate can be set aside. What's important is that both the tales and the narration by Michael Hanson are excellent. O. Henry has fallen out of fashion in academic circles, but his stories remain sufficiently popular among modern readers to assure that this package will be welcome among library patrons. Divided into "New York Stories" and "Western Stories," the selections range from the classic "Gift of the Magi" to the playful "Ransom of Red Chief," about an incorrigible brat who turns the tables on his kidnappers. Moreover, Hanson's delightful reading is a special treat; his carefully modulated and mellow voice helps transport the listener back to the early 20th century, when O. Henry wrote these tales. Recommended for all general collections. Kent Rasmussen, Thousand Oaks, CA
