Publisher Comments:

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.


"A success story . . . proof that one can rise above the disease and defy its so-called limitations on the brain."--
