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.

    It’s not Keira’s smile, it’s her sweater! I think it’s radioactive!

    All I could think during Pride and Prejudice was how Knightley should someday play a vampire, they wouldn’t even need to give her fangs.

  • Jeffrey Overstreet

    Dude… that was the point. She looks SCARY!

    Personally, I find certain other actresses to be far more appealing… but I don’t need to go there.

    Heel with the Keira worship, Rover. Remember the whole purity thing. Plus she looks like a vampire in that shot.

    re: Futurama

    WOOHOOO! That’s probably the best news I’ve heard all day. Now let’s just hope they don’t take as long as that Simpsons movie they’ve been talking about for a decade…

  • Josh Hurst

    Jeffrey, I think “Nanny McFabulous” is the single greatest thing you’ve ever written. Forget about the Auralia book; you have reached your peak here.

  • Why

    I can feel for them. A couple of years ago my family had to put down one of our cats, that day must have been one of the saddest days in our household. So my condolences to Over the Rhine in their time of sorrow.
