In addition to 3 Sections, Seshadri is also the author of Wild Kingdom (1996) and The Long Meadow (2003), which won the James Laughlin Award. Seshadri has received fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the NEA, and the Guggenheim Foundation. He has worked as an editor at the New Yorker and has taught at Bennington College and Sarah Lawrence College, where he currently directs the graduate non-fiction writing program.
