This collection of poetry and illustrations is inspired by all that is Jeff Bridges and the iconic roles he has played on the big screen. Equally haunting, heartfelt, and humorous, Jeff Bridges serves as a book of meditation for any lover of film and poetry.
One of Hillard’s Jeff Bridges poems appeared in a Cobalt Review interview in 2013. She is the author of several collections, including Parapherna (2006), Exhibition (2008), Theology of the Body (2010), Covenant (2012), and The Aphasia Poems (2014).
Jeff Bridges is Hillard’s still, small voice. Jeff Bridges-as-Buddha. Jeff Bridges-as-Bruce Boxleitner from Tron. As Puck. Jeff Bridges’ soliloquies address the book’s speaker through the many tongues of his acting canon, responding to emotional events in her life, essentially doing for the reader what the secret obsessions made public tend to do: endear us completely to the voices in this work.
