“Mr. Wilson’s Bookshelf”: John Wilson Picks the Best of 2006

Here’s the annual list of recommendations from the editor of Books and Culture, John Wilson.

I’ve seen Mr. Wilson’s office, and it is a book-lover’s dream… you would be surprised how many books he’s managed to fit in that fairly modest office space. These are his favorites of 2006.

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.

    personally, i’m very jealous of anyone who is able to publish a best-of books list in the same year all of the books were published.

    mine tend to be, ‘what i read and really liked this year, but not necessarily published within the last, say, five years.’
