I was once solving a test passage on Khan Academy last year. It contained a story of a boy who fooled a newspaper-boy to tell all the other residents of a village that a man was marrying a woman. It was an excerpt from a novel that was so very hilarious. What novel is this from?

    Welcome to Literature! What test did you read this passage in? Could you provide us with a year, or even a decade, at least? See the identification-request wiki for more useful kinds of information. – bobble May 27 at 15:21

    Thank you for this update. Please edit details into the question directly instead of leaving them in comments, and be as specific as possible. – bobble May 27 at 21:25
