The Gentle Grafter" looks at business from a distinctly shady angle, with its stories about cool-headed, sharp-dressing trickster Jeff Peters.O. Herny was a supreme story teller, drawing his material from the lives of ordinary people - clerks, city dwellers, exiles and drifters.O. Henry was the pseudonym for William Sydney Porter, master of the short story. His empathy ran deep and he wrote in the language of the man in the street.
