Philip Schultz is the author of My Dyslexia, a memoir; The Wherewithal, a novel in verse; and seven collections of poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Failure. The founder and director of the Writers Studio, he lives in East Hampton, New York.
"I can certainly relate to [Schultz's] self-doubt, as must the multitude of dyslexics reading his thoughtful memoir... But this is not a self-pitying book, or one filled with dry dyslexia facts. The condition has shaped Schultz into the man he is today, and he's glad it did." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer "Will illuminate and inspire not just dyslexics and poets, but anyone struggling, in any hour, with his or her own body or mind's seeming indifference to human volition, creativity, and desire." -- Chronicle of Higher Education "A must-read, a true gift for all those who have experienced dyslexia close up or who care deeply about a child or an adult who is dyslexic." -- Sally Shawitz, MD, author of Overcoming Dyslexia
