Danica Novgorodoff, author of Slow Storm and Refresh, Refresh, brings her distinctive voice and gorgeous, moody watercolors to her new literary graphic novel The Undertaking of Lily Chen. After a young man in rural China accidentally kills his older brother in a fight, his distraught parents send him on a hopeless journey to acquire a bride for his brother to marry posthumously so he doesn't enter the next world alone — an ancient Chinese tradition with many modern adherents. Eligible female corpses are in short supply, however, until he falls into company with a beautiful, angry, and single young woman; the only hitch is that she is still very much alive. Novgorodoff discusses life, death, marriage and comics with writer Whitney Matheson, a fan of Novgorodoff’s work and the force behind USA Today’s Pop Candy pop culture blog.
