Cabbages and Kings

By O. Henry
Narrated by Sean Pratt / 7 hours 9 minutes

O. Henry wove several stories together into this highly episodic narrative, taking his title and inspiration from Lewis Carroll's poem "The Walrus and the Carpenter" in Alice in Wonderland. The stories are set in the fictional country of Anchuria in Central America, a banana republic where larceny is rampant and revolution is lurking in every impoverished back alley. O. Henry offers a cutting satire of contemporary politics and prejudices. Nevertheless, an essential middle-class morality prevails, in which lovers are reunited, poverty obliterated, character rewarded, and sentiment satisfied.
