Ngak’chang Rinpoche speaks with Ngakma Mé-tsal Wangmo about his memoirs — from her readings of ‘an odd boy’ Volume I. ‘an odd boy’ has been described as Jack Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’ meets Dylan Thomas’ ‘Under Milk Wood’. It’s a portrait of the artist as a young man; a coming-of-age adventure set in the cultural ferment of the 1960s. A high-spirited escapade—humorous and poignant by turn—of an era when the arts set a generation’s imagination on fire. https://aro-books-worldwide.org/shared/text/b/book_pb_05_an_odd_boy_v01_01_eng.php ..read more
