These stories are amazing! I am not typically a big fan of the short story but this collection by Mr. Porter has made me a fan of his. The wit, the unexpected twist and turns always leaves you with a surprise ending. This is one of the great story tellers and should be an inspiration to anyone who wants to write and does not have a higher education. O. Henry or William Porter never went to college and yet his star shines equal to a Hemingway, Stevenson, or Dickens.
