Danica Novgorodoff presents The Undertaking of Lily Chen
In conversation with Whitney Matheson of USA Today
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.
