About this title

Synopsis:

An inspiring memoir of a Pulitzer Prize winner’s triumph over disability.

Despite winning the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 2008, Philip Schultz could never shake the feeling of being exiled to the "dummy class" in school, where he was largely ignored by his teachers and peers and not expected to succeed. Not until many years later, when his oldest son was diagnosed with dyslexia, did Schultz realize that he suffered from the same condition.

In his moving memoir, Schultz traces his difficult childhood and his new understanding of his early years. In doing so, he shows how a boy who did not learn to read until he was eleven went on to become a prize-winning poet by sheer force of determination. His balancing act―life as a member of a family with not one but two dyslexics, countered by his intellectual and creative successes as a writer―reveals an inspiring story of the strengths of the human mind.

About the Author:

Philip Schultz is the author of a memoir, a novel in verse, and seven previous collections of poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize–winning Failure. The founder and director of the Writers Studio, he lives in East Hampton, New York.
