You'll be sorry when I'm dead
Writer, Marieke Hardy, presents a series of observations based on often extreme life experiences and passions. Themes include past relationships and friendships, a range of sexual activities plus addictions to alcohol and musicians. At times people appearing in the book are given the opportunity to comment on what has been written. The demise of the Fitzroy Football Club - a family passion - a friend's battle with cancer, sessions to encourage letter writing, an obsession with Bob Ellis (including naming her dog after him), life as a child actor and writing for telelvision form the basis for some of the chapters. Marike writes for a number of publications and many of the chapters are based on material previously published.
