Henry was born in North Carolina, almost half a century ago that he died in New York, his Bagdad- on-the-Subway, the cily which he knew as » "tourist," as Longford notes astutely, and which he celebrated In m a n y short stories in such collections as "The Four Million" and "The Voice of the Cily," The most popular shorl story writer of his time and even now wilh a pseudonym better known t h a n n n y other in our letters except Mnrk Twain, Porter had a following too devout lo put much credence in unsavory rumors: Thai he didn'l gel along with either of his wives, that he indulged in tawdry affairs, that he embezzled, that he drank. Langford grants 0. Henry a big place in our literary history, perhaps more than I would care lo give the man who confessed his surprise endings were jusl n "Irick." But he is a stickler for fact, he thinks Porter the man as unrealistic as 0. Henry the writer, cites chapter antl verse, down lo a count of the empty bottles, to prove he drank, and is convinced thai Ihe embezzlement for which Porter served throe years in the Ohio Penitentiary actually occurred. ' This still leaves a unique individual of greal fascination and originality, a man more significant, as Langford regards It, than his talent. His reticence and shyness, his spendthrift ways, his bland uninvolvement in the rights and wrongs o[ his limes, his bewildering moodiness, Ihe blind devotion of his friends--Ihese make a most curious picture, Laiigtord's biography provides a superb 0.
