Trace Foundation's Latse Newsletter, vol. 2

The second issue of Trace Foundation's Latse Newsletter features reports on recent happenings in the Foundation's library, including a special showcase of Tibetan stand-up comedians, and our 2003 conference, marking the centennial of Gendun Chopel's birth. Also included are an interview between Jamyang Norbu and Elliot Sperling, notes on the life of Ippolito Desideri—a jesuit who, at the dawn of the eighteenth century became the first Westerner to learn Tibetan—and an excerpt from The Mandala of Sherlock Holmes, Jamyang Norbu's new novel in English chronicling the lost years of the British detective.
