The Nine-Eyed Agate is an overview of poetry and prose written between 1984 and 2002 by one of Tibet's most well known contemporary authors and intellectuals, Jangbu. Illustrated by his original sketches and covering a broad spectrum, the author evokes nomadic life, love and betrayal, social upheaval, political satire and mystical revelation. Experimenting with language and genre, his writing ranges from the "obscure" post-Cultural Revolution style to recent pithy read-between-the-lines statements.
