The Undertaker's Tale

Episode 1 of 3

15 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 19 May 2009

Series of three short stories by major writers which have only recently come to light.

By Mark Twain.

Newly published in the book 'Who Is Mark Twain?' and The Strand Magazine, Twain's tale about the funeral industry had lain undiscovered for 130 years. Twain tackles the same problems that we are challenged with today and pokes fun at the same type of characters that inhabit our present-day world.

This world broadcast premiere is read by Hector Elizondo.

A Jarvis and Ayres production for BBC Radio 4.
