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.

    Very nice T Bone review, Jeffrey. It’s uncannily like the review I wrote in Paste. So to avoid claims of plagiarism, I hereby swear that my review was written independently of yours.

    So do you think “The True False Identity” is a comedy album, as T Bone claimed?

    Very nice, Jeffrey. You’re doing much better than I am covering new music this year, though hopefully I’ll be back on my game soon.

    I am jealous that you’ve already heard the T-Bone disc. And, I’m curious to hear what you think of Donald Fagen’s album, which I noticed you are listening to. That one’s still my favorite of the year.
