Book Trailer Thursday: The Undertaking of Lily Chen

Danica Novgorodoff’s gorgeous The Undertaking of Lily Chen features lovely watercolor backgrounds, stylishly exaggerated figures, and a life-or-death story in contemporary China as Deshi searches the countryside to find a corpse bride for his recently deceased brother. If that wasn’t enough to convince you of the drama at hand, this book trailer ups the ante with a gravelly voiced narrator and blood dripping in slow motion! But don’t let the earnest tone deceive you: there’s subtle humor in the absurdity of Deshi’s journey, in the I-think-I-love-you-but-I’m-supposed-to-murder-you kind of way.
