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.
