Jesus is My Mixtape: A Spiritual Biography
Cathleen Falsani

Cathleen Falsani had her first epiphany at age twelve while listening to U2's song "Gloria" for the first time in a friend's living room. And, not unlike Rob Gordon in High Fidelity, she can trace her spiritual evolution in the songs she was listening to at the time, and, perhaps, that were shaping what was happening in her soul. From U2's October to U2's No Line on the Horizon, with stops as varied as the Indigo Girls, Jeff Buckley, Luciano Pavarotti, the Beatles and the Dixie Chicks in between, throughout her life music has been the fastest vehicle to get her to grace. She tells that story, with vignettes from her books The God Factor, Sin Boldly and the forthcoming The Dude Abides: the Gospel According to the Coen Brothers and The Thread: Finding A Sacred Place in Cyberspace, along with music clips.
