Philip Schultz is the founder/director of The Writers Studio, a private school for fiction and poetry writing in New York City, and the author of several collections of poetry, including Failure, winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize. This talk focuses on his new book—The Wherewithal: A Novel in Verse, published in February, 2014—which tells the story of Henryk Wyrzykowski, a drifting, haunted young man hiding from the Vietnam War in the basement of a San Francisco welfare building, translating his mother’s diaries. The diaries concern the Jedwabne massacre, in 1941 German-occupied Poland. The story is a meditation on the nature of evil and the destruction of war.
