I reckon Mary Hardy was fabulous. I have written about her a few times in the past. Mentally frail, not exactly stunning looks, funny, quick witted, vulgar, great aunt of The Age's Green Guide columnist Marieke Hardy and sister of infamous communist and author Frank Hardy.
We were deprived of her talents when she ended her own life, but in tv footage, she lives on. Tomorrow night on ABC1 she is featured in Artscape at 10pm. I won't be missing it.
