Biography & Memoir • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Poet and fiction writer Phillip Schultz was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of 58. It didn't stop him from winning a Pulitzer Prize, but it has had a lifelong effect, one that has constantly crept into his thoughts and choices. William Hughes keeps the narration upbeat even as he describes Schultz's anxiety, depression, and frustration over his difficulties with reading, which have continued into adulthood. The book includes several poems by Schultz, and Hughes's reading at times takes on a poetic quality beyond the actual poems. The book, inspired by a commencement address given by Schultz, takes a unique perspective from the author's literary life. It offers inspiration to anyone dealing with personal crisis.
