O. Henry was perhaps the greatest short story writer of his day. His characters may be from America at the turn of the century but their foibles and shortcomings are recognised by us all irrespective of culture or time.

In this passage:
Policeman Cleary came back around the corner as the crowd
dispersed. Surprised, he upturned an ear toward the McCaskey
apartment where the crash of irons and chinaware and the ring of
hurled kitchen utensils seemed as loud as before. Policeman

lady have been fightin' for an hour and a quarter by the watch.
The missis could give him forty pounds weight. Strength to his
arm.'(less)
