"The Fool Killler" by O. Henry

Recommended Posts

Absinthe is part of this 1908 short story. Here is a teaser:


"Have an absinthe drip?" said Kerner, grandly. "To-night you are the guest of Art in paying quantities. I think we will get a flat with a bath."


"I never tried one -- I mean an absinthe drip," said I.


The waiter brought it and poured the water slowly over the ice in the dripper.


"It looks exactly like the Mississippi River water in the big bend below Natchez," said I, fascinated, gazing at the be-muddled drip.


It is a very quick read, only 5 pages. Online
