From The Age, ‘They lived the dream….then tried to destroy it’.:

You’re better than this, The Age.
Or at least, you used to be.
“ACERBIC WIT, UNFLINCHING GAZE AND RAZOR-SHARP INSIGHT OF A WRITER AT THE HEIGHT OF HER POWERS.”
From childhood dreams of prostitution to her unabashed passion for heavy drinking, from growing up wide-eyed on the set of Australian soaps to her infatuation with Bob Ellis, these are the outrageously entertaining and deeply revealing reminiscences of a multimedia star.
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.
You can buy it here, HURRAY! Give that we (she) may grow.

Marieke Hardy, standing behind a book counter, ineptly serving customers.
You can follow my inconsistently amusing bon mots on twitter.com/mariekehardy. Some nice person started a FB fan page. I don't know their name though. I should probably find out and buy them a little present or a pony.
Marieke Josephine Hardy is a screenwriter, author, blogger, radio presenter, and part-time mud wrestler. She was once introduced to Patti Smith and when asked how she was doing said 'food' because she couldn't decide on whether to say 'fine' or 'good' so instead settled on an interesting combination of the two. Patti Smith looked at her with no small amount of disdain before walking away. ››
