The Gift of the Magi is a popular short story.

An short story is a work of fiction or creative non-fiction that can easily be read in a single sitting; usually, under a half-hour when read aloud.


Short stories were common in my grade school education, so I read a couple dozen of them growing up. I also have tried to read a fair amount of the more popular titles just to have a better understand of their influence. While I like how they're able to put forward a point without nearly as much investment as novels, I almost never find ones that I really like.


For all short stories, see the category.
