Cornelius Eady

African American poet Cornelius Eady has published seven poetry collections, and was recently nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. His latest, Brutal Imagination (Putnam) is a cycle of poems that revisits the Susan Smith child murder case through the voice of the imaginary black man she said carjacked and kidnapped her children. From New York, Tom Vitale reports.
