A standout debut, this is narrative non-fiction writing at its best. Sarah Krasnostein explores the meaning and impact of trauma by fusing the compelling life story of Sandra Pankhurst, the trauma cleaner of the title, with descriptions of the houses she cleans and – more importantly – the people who live in them. Sandra is an extraordinary woman whose own traumas (as an abused child, as a transgender person, as a rape survivor) have had their impact on her life, but have left her determined to do the best job she possibly can as she supports people suffering their own traumas. Eschewing voyeurism in favour of deep thinking and emotional truth-telling, Krasnostein delivers a book that perfectly balances empathy and clear-sightedness.
