Writing at the rate of more than one story per week, O. Henry published ten collections of stories during a career that barely spanned a decade. Whirligigs is one of them. Henry's best known work is perhaps the much anthologized "The Ransom of Red Chief", included in this collection Whirligig.

《生命的陀螺》是美国著名作家欧·亨利的短篇小说集,出版于1910年。其中收录的小说构思精巧,风格独特,主要表现美国中下层人民的生活,体现了欧·亨利透视生活的能力。欧·亨利著名短篇小说《红毛酋长的赎金》也收录在这本小说集中。

欧·亨利(1862年9月11日-1910年6月5日),原名威廉·西德尼·波特,20世纪初美国著名短篇小说家,美国现代短篇小说创始人。与法国的莫泊桑、俄国的契诃夫并称为世界三大短篇小说巨匠。他的短篇小说构思精巧,风格独特,以表现美国中下层人民的生活、语言幽默、结局出人意料(即“欧·亨利式结尾”)而闻名于世。代表作品有《白菜与国王》、《四百万》、《命运之路》、《麦琪的礼物》等。

William Sydney Porter (September 11, 1862-June 5, 1910), known by his pen name O. Henry, was an American writer. O. Henry's short stories are known for their wit, wordplay, warm characterization, and clever twist endings.

A favourite dodge to get your story read by the public is to assert that it is true, and then add that Truth is stranger than Fiction. I do not know if the yarn I am anxious for you to read is true; but the Spanish purser of the fruit steamer El Carrero swore to me by the shrine of Santa Guadalupe that he had the facts from the U. S. vice-consul at La Paz-a person who could not possibly have been cognizant of half of them..
