Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In his "psychologically accurate portrait," well-published cultural geographer Tuan traces his life as a private individual, an academic, and a citizen of the world. Born into a diplomat's family in 1930s China, Tuan has been influenced by China and the many other places he has lived, including France, England, Australia, Berkeley, CA, Minnesota, and now Madison, WI. His autobiography blends vignettes of wartime China, 1950s Berkeley, and other academic settings with a sharply self-critical look into his own life and psyche. While Tuan is a highly successful scholar, he sees himself as eternally immature, lacking in courage and vitality, and timid in personal relationships. His slant is unique, probing into the details of his life as a naturalized Asian American, a European-trained scholar, and a quietly homosexual proponent of humanistic geography. As Tuan explores who he is, sometimes dealing himself achingly harsh treatment, he offers insights into what makes a cultural geographer and why this profession appeals to someone of his intellect and outlook. Recommended for larger public libraries.AD.E. Perushek, Northwestern Univ. Lib., Evanston, IL

Review

"In this brief and unsparing autobiography, one of the greatest living geographers turns his versatile intelligence away from studying the landscape of the earth to studying the landscape of self."--Scott Russell Sanders, "Hungry Mind Review"

"[Tuan] unfolds his life, friendships, environment, and emotions in a unique manner that not only makes reading this book quite interesting but also encourages readers to look at human life and society from a different perspective."--Suping Lu, "Multicultural Review"

"An honest and highly personal, if unfashionable, perspective on sexuality, race, and identity. . . . It is undoubtedly worth reading, both for the inherently interesting tale it relates and for Tuan's willingness to risk self-exposure."--Benjamin Forest, "Cultural Geographies"
