Bookshelf


When Gabrielle of Penguin Books was kind enough to send me a review copy of the new book The 14th Dalai Lama: A Manga Biography by Tetsu Saiwai, I was intrigued — how would the story of the Dalai Lama translate into a graphic novel format? As it turns out, I was both charmed by the lovely illustrations and impressed by how it covers in detail the tragic and historic events that shaped the life of the Dalai Lama — great for readers of all ages who are interested in the leader of the Tibetan government-in-exile.

This sounds like a fantastic book, not to mention an intriguing concept: will have to track down a copy in the UK.
