    schema:description ""Yet, Tuan finds his life increasingly marked by detachment and isolation. In Who Am I?, he probes what he sees as his moral failings, his lack of courage - including the courage to be open about his homosexuality - resulting, as he writes, "in a life that is seamed in ambivalence - achingly empty at the core, despairingly alone, yet often content, occasionally even happy," as when he catches glimpses of heaven in his exploration of the beautiful and the good."--Jacket."@en ;
