It's a multi-layered tale about Sandra Pankhurst, who is nearly impossible to describe without just writing a book about her, as the author has done.

    This is an incredible portrait of a deeply complicated woman – and I adored it. Sandra Pankhurst owns a company specializing on trauma cleaning (after suicides and violent crimes but mostly for people with hoarding tendencies).

    The Trauma Cleaner, Sandra, is a horrible person but the blurb says, "Sarah Krasnostein's The Trauma Cleaner is a love letter to an extraordinary ordinary life". The author excuses the awfulness of her subject every time by harking back to her upbringing.Sandra, then a boy, had a traumatic upbringin...

    My full review, as well as my other thoughts on reading, can be found on my blog.A blend of biography and memoir, The Trauma Cleaner meditates on what it means to live with the memory of great pain. The book alternates between describing the daily work of Sandra Pankhurst, a trans woman who owns a t...
