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.
Marieke Hardy is a screenwriter, blogger, and radio broadcaster. After many years writing a humorous television column in The Age, she moved on to regular political columns for ABC's The Drum and senior contributing work for Frankie magazine. In the guise of literary reviewer she makes Jennifer Byrne's life an unbridled misery once a month on ABC TV's First Tuesday Book Club.
