Atticus Lish’s transcendent novel follows the paths of an American ex-soldier and a woman from a remote desert area of northwestern China and herdsmen all the way to Queens, New York. Preparation for the Next Life evokes both the desolation and the hopefulness that immigrants have discovered coming to this country. At its core, this is a fractured love story, as well as an honest examination of the often-overlooked immigrant experience in this country.

Filled with seemingly dissimilar characters that bring the drowned city to life, each individual eventually has a part to play in the metaphorical and the meteorological storms that follow.
