The Ink-Keeper's Apprentice
Order at Amazon.com
Based on Allen Say's own boyhood in Japan, The Ink-Keeper's Apprentice is a rich and remarkable novel. The story of a budding artist and his steps toward self-reliance, Kiyoi's tale is also one of the fragile beauty of human relationships-- of family loyalty, of friendship, and of the special bond between a mentor and his student.
