"Two Brilliant new blog posts from Canada on Janie Chang and Found Inkwell"

"an entertainment, and a fine one."

- Washington Post

"Govier astonishes throughout in her ability to write epic themes intimately... lavishly researched and brilliant... emotionally wrenching"

- Publishers Weekly

“If you read one novel this year by a writer you may be unfamiliar with, read The Printmaker’s Daughter... A sweeping, breathtaking story . . . ”

- New York Journal of Books



Katsushika Oei, Detail from Three Women Playing Musical Instruments, Museum of Fine Arts Boston


"I suspected there was more to this silenced and subdued woman than history allowed. But I did not know the extent to which O-ei’s secret is the secret of Hokusai himself. I might have given up if she hadn’t kept speaking to me. As my research continued I found a surprising truth. Now I understand what was at stake and why it hadn’t been told." - Katherine Govier
