"The Undertaker's Tale"

Twain_markLater this week, a previously unpublished story by Mark Twain entitled The Undertaker's Tale will be released.

According to Andrew Gulli, the editor of The Strand Magazine in which the article will appear, "Twain uses his razor sharp wit to pen a tongue-in-cheek tale about the funeral industry."

The short story that The Strand Magazine is going to publish is actually excerpted from a 24-piece collection of Twain's personal papers, entitled WHO IS MARK TWAIN?
