Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Philip Schultz returns with LUXURY [W. W. Norton & Company; November 26, 2019; $15.95 paperback], an extraordinary new book of poems about nothing less than life and death. A study of the big and small days that make a life, this book is also about the difficulty and worth of life itself. In its contemplation of suicide, LUXURY delves deeply into an all-too-common tragedy and makes beauty in the process. This is a book to return to in times of need and reflection, and it is a must-read for anyone working to survive, and celebrate, every day.

Philip Schultz is the author of a memoir, a novel in verse, and seven previous collections of poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize–winning Failure. The founder and director of the Writers Studio, he lives in East Hampton, New York.
