Sad News for Tolkien Fans: The Scouring of the Tolkien Bungalow

I’ve been to this house, the place where J.R.R. Tolkien took refuge from his fans in the years after the meteoric rise of The Lord of the Rings to international fame.

Looks like it’s scheduled for destruction.

If this were a Disney movie, wouldn’t the fans rally to save the Tolkien house and stand against the march of progress?

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.
