O. Henry (1862-1910), Born William Sydney Porter, on September 11,1862, in Greensboro, North Carolina, he was the famous American short-story writer, who wrote under the pseudonym O. Henry, pioneered in picturing the lives of lower-class and middle-class New Yorkers. Porter attended school for a short time, then clerked in an uncle's drugstore. At the age of 20 he went toTexas, working first on a ranch and later as a bank teller. In 1887 he married and began to write freelance sketches. A few years later he founded a humorous weekly, the Rolling Stone . When this failed, he became a reporter and columnist on the Houston Post . He was indicted in 1896 for embezzling bank funds(actually a result of technical mismanagement),and was imprisoned in Columbus, Ohio. During his three-year incarceration, he wrote adventure stories set inTexasandCentral Americathat quickly became popular and were collected in Cabbages and Kings . Released from prison in 1902, Porter went to New York City, his home and the setting of most of his fiction for the remainder of his life, writing prodigiously under the pen name O. Henry. His popular collections of stories included The Four Million; Heart of the West and The Trimmed Lamp; The Gentle Grafter and The Voice of the City; Options; and Whirligigs and Strictly Business. 欧·亨利是一位高产的作家,一生共留下了一部长篇小说和三百多篇短篇小说。他的短篇小说构思精巧,风格独特,与当时其他作家着重表现纽约等大城市的上层社会不同,欧·亨利一直着力于表现繁华都会以及西部乡村里普普通通的“小人物”,描写了美国民众的日常生活以及他们对浪漫和冒险生活的追求。其以语言幽默、结局出人意料(即“欧·亨利式结尾”)而闻名于世。代表作有短篇小说《爱的牺牲》(A Service of Love)、《警察与赞美诗》(The Cop and the Anthem)、《带家具出租的房间》(The Furnished Room)、《麦琪的礼物》(The Gift of the Magi)、《最后的常春藤叶》(The Last Leaf)等。 本书为英文原版,汇集了65篇欧·亨利经典作品,同时配以原版朗读供读者免费下载(下载地址见图书封底),让读者边听边读,更好地提升英语水平。<br/>【推荐语】<br/>    欧·亨利,20世纪初美国著名短篇小说家,美国现代短篇小说创始人。与法国的莫泊桑、俄国的契诃夫并称为“世界三大短篇小说巨匠”。本书按英文版方式出版,汇集了65篇欧·亨利的经典短篇小说,同时配以原版朗读文件,供读者免费下载,边听边读,综合提升语言的学习能力与水平。 经典短篇小说推荐: SNOWFLAKES: BEST SHORT STORIES OF NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE 霍桑经典短篇小说(英文原版) WHEN THE WORLD WAS YOUNG: BEST SHORT STORIES OF JACK LONDON 杰克·伦敦经典短篇小说(英文原版)<br/>【作者】<br/>欧·亨利,20世纪初美国著名短篇小说家,美国现代短篇小说创始人。与法国的莫泊桑、俄国的契诃夫并称为“世界三大短篇小说巨匠”。 他少年时曾一心想当画家,婚后在妻子的鼓励下始写作。后因在银行供职时的账目问题而狱,服刑期间始认真写作,并以“欧·亨利”为笔名发表了大量短篇小说,引起读者广泛关注。<br/>
