The Furnished Room & The Cop and the Anthem

 

Along with Damon Runyan, O. Henry wrote fables of New York in its youth. Amidst the ribaldry and manic energy, the latter captured some of the extreme loneliness that huge expansion causes. Henry’s two stories – minor masterpieces of empathy – capture his pertinence to the contemporary urban condition perfectly.
