The Ghost Brush by Katherine Govier
HarperCollins Publishers Ltd., Toronto, 2010
This is a fictitious story about the life of Oi, daughter of the famous artist Hokusai. Oi was a real person and a recognized artist, but there is very little reliable information about her life. The story may be fiction, but Govier has done her research well and the book is full of wonderful detail about the period.
