Praise for Speech of the Maquerade
“Kendall Driscoll is the contemplative voice of the Millennials and the sympathetic friend we all wish we’d had in school. Cultured and attentive as a classical musician, she records her generation’s contradictions and the insecurities that bind them: the love-struck and lovelorn, bullies and victims, teen idols and unsung heroes. With brave honesty she explores the dichotomies of perfectionism and pressure, happy families and divorce, the contradictory counsel to dream big but get real, and the fear that young ambition will become middle-aged depression. Introspective as a diary, Speech of the Masquerade is by turns melodramatic, playful, and angst-ridden, and should be required reading for parents and teachers who may have forgotten how it feels to be a teen in turmoil.”
~J.C. Elkin, author of World Class: Poems Inspired by the ESL Classroom
