Jamyang Norbu

Tibetan writer

Jamyang Norbu is a Tibetan writer who the International Herald Tribune described " one of the most incisive and prolific commentators on the political scene, a writer with strong opinions but also the wide reading and intellectual depth to back them up, sometimes fiercely". He is the author of several books, plays, pamphlets and a traditional Tibetan opera libretto. He is also the winner of the Crossword Award for English Fiction, 2000, India's equivalent of the Booker Prize, for his Kipling/Conan Doyle pastiche, The Mandala of Sherlock Holmes. Norbu was briefly a member of the Tibetan resistance movement in Mustang in Northern Nepal.

Jamyang Norbu's blog is called Shadow Tibet.
