Vijay Seshadri says his early experience of being an immigrant allowed him to see the panorama of American society. The 2014 Pulitzer Prize poetry winner for his book “3 Sections” was born in Bangalore, India, and came to the U.S. when he was 5 years old, and eventually settled in New York. Jeffrey Brown talks to Seshadri about his approach to writing and what makes this a golden age of poetry.
