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.

    Actually, the big clue was that we had a man, in a dark room, talking on a phone with his BACK to a window looking into a lighted room. The little details, like the sign over the window, the lamp, the color of the curtain, etc. confirmed it. I could never have guessed the first half-shot in a million years, despite loving “Raising Arizona”. Thanks for the entertainment Jeff!

    The Paste review cracked me up. I’m admittedly a Thompson fanatic, but the reviewer totally missed it, complaining of cliches like the phrase “As I went a’ walkin’”. That’s not cliche, laddie, that’s tradition. Made me want to consign him to a lifetime of bad “Danny Boy” covers in the fake Irish pubs that have sprung up all over America.

    Did you know Alec Guinness’s Fagin make-up was designed by Stuart Freeborn, the man who went on to create Yoda and Jabba the Hutt? :)

    Though nothing beats just hearing him and his guitar perform live. I got to see him here in NJ for Kit Bag. Beeswing brought tears to my eyes to hear it live. He also performed Oops I did It Again and made the song sound good. A true master.

    Interesting about RT. I am a loyal and devoted follower. I like The Old Kit Bag, but I think I’ve decided that Mock Tudor is my favorite of the last decade. I didn’t love it when it came out, then rediscovered it a couple of years late and became obsessed.
