Eden M. Kennedy

Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works a straight job and is just about finished writing her first novel.

I've decided that I want to increase the volume of my hair. I want a conditioner that will turn my hair into a bullhorn transmitter for my every thought. I want to walk down the street and have my hair hump my head to the rhythm of the beatbox of my mind, so that my skull reverberates like a Honda with two Shaq-mansion-sized speakers turned up to twelve taking up the whole back seat. With its windows rolled up.

That's the kind of volume I want. With a delicate apple-ginger scent.
