From stalking and eventually meeting her Young Talent Time idol when she was twelve to dalliances with streetwalkers to a mildly perverse obsession with Bob Ellis, there is nothing Marieke Hardy won't write about. Voyeuristic, painful, hilarious, and heartfelt, You'll Be Sorry When I'm Dead reveals the acerbic wit, unflinching gaze, and razor-sharp insight of a writer at the height of her powers - or the unhinged fantasies of a dangerous mind with not enough to do.
Shelby is convinced her reliable but ugly pony, Blue, is holding her back at Pony Club. If only she had a beautiful horse, everyone would see what a great rider she is. But how can Shelby buy a new horse when her parents can’t even afford to pay her Pony Club fees?
