In The Undertaking of Lily Chen by Danica Novgorodoff, Deshi, a young man struggling to make a life for himself in rural China, accidentally kills his older brother in a fight. His parents send him, according to ancient Chinese tradition, on a journey to find an unwed female corpse to posthumously marry and be buried with his brother so he doesn't enter the next world alone. When Deshi meets Lily, he sees a solution to his problem, except Lily is still very much alive. The Undertaking of Lily Chen will be published by First Second on March 25.
