The New Yorker on “Into Great Silence”

Into Great Silence is “ridiculously popular” in New York, according to a new article in The New Yorker. And when New York’s only Carthusian shows up to talk about his order, things get even more interesting.

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.

    Maybe this sounds silly, but I kept looking to see if the article would describe what the man was wearing. Black clerical perhaps instead of the long robe thing? The emphasis of the article was Fr. Holleran’s subtle degrees of semi-alienation from contemporary society (a bit of a stranger in a strange land), and so I feel that failing to describe what he was wearing detracted from that aspect of the article.
