    "Teen Scream" In Teen Scream we are carried on a ride from the time two daughters are 11 and 13 years old to their leave taking. In this relatively short book we experience the range of feeling elicited by parenting: the delight, fear, sadness, rage, love, yearning, confusion, doubt and faith. There is emotional veracity throughout, described verbally and visually through journal entries, drawings and sculpture. The author/artist is a poet. Although there is only one actual poem, some of her journal entries are sheer poetry. She has an finely tuned sense of metaphor that plunks into us to resonate deeply. The drawings range from the exquisitely rendered to the unruly expressionist to the cartoony, from the beautiful to the grotesque. The sculptures are alternately tender, humorous and disturbing. All of them rise with authenticity out of the subconscious realm to be made conscious. Megan Rice has a capacity to expose the underbelly, the shadow side of parenting as well as... More > the fierce light of love. But make no mistake. This is at times a very funny book. The humor serves to allow all the pain to be seen. It is a description of the messy process of separation and the emptying of a nest. The humor speaks of an affectionate, compassionate detachment from her wild self and her wild children. Any parent with teenagers or who has been graced and cursed through the raising of them will delight and weep reading Teen Scream. Perhaps too, anyone who has been a teenager or is one would appreciate it. And for artists and journal writers this book is an inspiration.< Less
