O. Henry wove together several stories into this highly episodic narrative. Set in the fictional country of Coralio in Central America, a banana republic where larceny is rampant and revolution lurks in every impoverished back alley, this novel offers cutting satire of contemporary politics and prejudices. Yet, in the end, lovers are reunited, poverty obliterated, and sentiment satisfied.
"[Sean Pratt] speaks the vernacular as naturally as he creates the characters' accents. [Pratt's] agile pacing and overall breezy approach work favorably."-AudioFile
