Life and career
In 1997, Insomniac Press published her controversial book on the Canadian criminal Paul Bernardo, Paul's Case.
In 2006, Crosbie published a book-length poem titled Liar, available through House of Anansi Press. Liar is a personal work that deals with the end of her seven-year relationship with the professional wrestling fan Michael Holmes, author of the critically acclaimed poetry book Parts Unknown. Her long relationship with the writer Tony Burgess is chronicled in Pearl (1996).
Crosbie is a cultural critic, and the author of several books of poetry: Miss Pamela's Mercy, Villainelle, and Missing Children.
Crosbie has lectured on and written about visual art at the AGO, the Power Plant, and OCAD University (where she taught for six years.) She is an award-winning journalist who has a regular column titled "Pop Rocks" in the Toronto newspaper The Globe and Mail and is a regular contributor to Toronto Life Fashion.
Her Trampoline Hall Lecture was entitled "Don't Have Casual Sex".
Her novel Where Did You Sleep Last Night? is slated for publication in 2015.
