Philip Schultz: The Wherewithal, a novel in verse



Philip Schultz, reads excerpts from The Wherewithal  A Novel in Verse
recorded in April 2014 at Canios Books, Sag Harbor.

Introducing Mr. Schultz,  Poet  Grace Schulman said: 

“Schultz takes on the challenge of writing about the Holocaust
in a way that affects everyone in our time.

Through it, he explores modern warfare, murder, hatred of our
enemies, and most painfully of our friends.


In short: He makes the unspeakable speakable, eloquently so.”


The Wherewithal was published by W.W. Norton in 2014.

Philip Schultz’s work includes the poetry collections: - Failure, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize for literature, and The God of Loneliness - and a memoir, My Dyslexia.


Mr. Schultz can be heard reading these works on previous East End Ink programs linked above.
