Cabbages and Kings
« Reply #1 on: Jul:30:2019 »

Author: O. Henry / Year:  1862-1910  / Genre: Short Stories

A series of stories which each explore some individual aspect of life in a paralytically sleepy Central American
 town while each advancing some aspect of the larger plot and relating back one to another in a complex structure
 which slowly explicates its own background even as it painstakingly erects a town which is one of the most detailed
 literary creations of the period.

In this book, O. Henry coined the term "banana republic".
