At turns “prayerful, nostalgic, and elegiac” (Library Journal) and “raging, kaleidoscopic…exhilarating” (Booklist), Philip Schultz is preeminent among American poets. His many collections include The God of Loneliness, Deep Within the Ravine, and Failure, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. He is the founder/director of The Writers Studio and a recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Among many other publications, his poetry and fiction have appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, and the Paris Review, and in 2011 he published a memoir, My Dyslexia. Schultz once again pens “his plainly framed, consistently articulated joys and sorrows” (Publisher’s Weekly) in The Wherewithal, a collection of linked verse in which a young man hiding from the Vietnam War draft translates his mother’s Holocaust diary.
