What's the story where the guy talks to a bunch of dead people and then finds out he's dead?

Short story in the genre of magical realism, probably Latin American. The basic plot is a guy sees various people who he thought had died and talks to them, and at the end it turns out he's dead too and they're all in a cemetery or mausoleum. Originally seen in a high school textbook, although I don't know which textbook (presumably indicating that it's fairly well known).
