About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    I’m only a moderate geek (haven’t read the books yet) and have never smoked pot. I am a pretty picky/critical film viewer. James and I saw the film last night and I loved it!! I’m sure being married to an Englishman helped – it enhanced my ability to appreciate the English humour.

    Agree completely, BethR. If you’re light-headed at all, it would be from the silliness, not the smoke. After a while, my wife tends to groan and roll her eyes at this stuff, so it isn’t for everyone. Anyway, I’m not sure that the reviewer quoted appreciates how many people are aware of these books & at least know some of the major points (like the meaning of LTU&E).

    All you really need to enjoy The Hitchhiker’s Guide is a lively sense of the ridiculous and an appreciation of paradox. Being British may help, but it’s not necessary. Drugs definitely not required.

    Haven’t seen the film yet, but I love the books. And my only pot experiences have been passive…
