NEW YORK —

A novel completed by Pulitzer Prize winner Oscar Hijuelos shortly before his death last year will be published in the fall of 2015.

Grand Central Publisher announced Wednesday it has acquired Hijuelos' "Twain and Stanley Enter Paradise," based on the friendship between Mark Twain and the explorer Sir Henry Morton Stanley. Grand Central will also publish Hijuelos' "Another Spaniard in the Works," a short story about a musician who meets John Lennon in 1980, the year the ex-Beatle was shot dead by a deranged fan. In the '60s, Lennon had published a book of humorous writings and drawings called "A Spaniard in the Works."

Hijuelos was best known for "The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love," a 1989 novel about Cuban musicians that won the Pulitzer.
