Things I Did While I Was Dead

Powerfully articulating themes as diverse as relationships, childhood, serial-killers and gender, this passionate and thought-provoking new collection showcases Rosie's affecting and award-winning poetry. And, as with her previous collections under the guise of alter-ego Rosie Lugosi, it has a deliciously determined bite.

Give me heat. I want to singe my fingers.
I want them sticky, messy, down and dirty,
I want life and all it costs.

- from "Love Bites"
