Summary

Who Am I?is the bittersweet memoir of a Chinese American who came to this country as a twenty-year-old graduate student and stayed to become one of Americars"s most innovative intellectuals, whose work has explored the aesthetic and moral dimensions of human relations with landscape, nature, and environment. This unusually introspective autobiography mixes Yi-Fu Tuanrs"s reflections on a life filled with recognition, accolades, and affection with what he deems moral failings-including the courage to be open about his homosexuality.
