    I recently read Maid which I liked but didn’t love I found the mix of focus on the author’s life and her observations of the people she worked for as a maid somewhat incongruous In a way The Trauma Cleaner does the same thing but so much better Sandra Pankhurst runs a company that cleans homes that seem beyond the possibility of being cleaned — the homes of hoarders people plagued by disease and addiction and th

Nd lives at the same time But few of the people she looks after know anything of the complexity of Sandra's own life Raised in an uncaring home Sandra's miraculous gift for warmth and humour in the face of unspeakable personal tragedy mark her out as a one off. Most fascinating person everThis is the number 1 most fascinating person I ve ever come across seriously Her far out life and her far out job just slay me For the entire book my eyes were in startle position and my brain was in wonder warp I could not put this biography down It s about a person named Sandra I can relate to her life as much as I can relate to jumping out of an airplane Her life has been bizarre but that s putting it mildly I m not going to elaborate though man do I want to in the off chance you re going into the book blind The layout of the book is creative Chapters alternate between the story of Sandra s life and reports of her cleaning jobs The writer goes to the sites along with the cleanup crew so you get a first hand report of what s happening The way the book is set up showing past and present Sandra gives you a vivid picture of her unusual life I was interested eually in both stories so I never got annoyed when the focus switchedSandra s strange past is startling and heart breaking you will do a lot of gasping yet you can t help but admire her resilience and sense of survival She is a very complicated survivor and her psychology is fascinating Some of Sandra s choices will infuriate you she s not always likeable She has memory and health problems due to a lot of substance abuse and hormones yet she is a model citizen with a great work ethic She has lived through many traumatic events way than one person should have to it s a wonder she isn t catatonic or dead Instead she holds no pity parties Or at least none that we the reader can see the biographer adores her and puts a positive spin on everything Sometimes the writer s idol worship is annoying but mostly not Oh the cleanups The thought of feces rats bugs and stench of course makes me sick But getting to sit in my calm and relatively clean surroundings and read about these faraway gross scenes worked out just fine The descriptions of the pungent piles and the people who own them are detailed and vivid I was right there a fly on the wall although I probably should stay away from the bug imagery able to watch without smelling or tripping over shit This is the time when you re plenty grateful that the visits are virtualYou get to hear the hoarders stories and they fascinated me Their stinky piles reflect a uniue and mystifying psychology What were the hoarders like pre stink What do they think about it all now Do they feel good or bad when their house is cleanI have to admit that my secret paper hoarder self got antsy Nothing like a little shock therapy to make you clean up your act You better believe that I tackled the growing piles of junky paper on my table it was starting to look pretty bad And then there s Sandra How can she stand it What in the world could make her want to enter these toxic environments That just fascinates me too What s in Sandra s head as she goes off to work every day I guess she s all la de da I ll just pull out my sledgehammer and dislodge some of the stuck on caca that engulfs every inch of this home while holding my nose so I don t puke Forget about grabbing my Bon Ami I ll get out my rake and crowbar if you don t mind Her business is thriving and she prides herself in being a perfectionist Sandra has a way of working with hoarders handling them with respect as she rescues them from the piles engulfing them She treats them gently and tries to lower their hugundous anxiety I got a peek into what made some hoarders tick and I got to see in detail how a team goes about cleaning up the mess what tools they use what health precautions they take They all wear space outfits except Sandra who goes into each home sort of dressed up Who in the hell signs up for this job Surprisingly I have a Complaint Board which I hardly ever drag out for a 5 star read But although you can barely see the complaints because I wrote in very light chalk they can t be ignoredComplaint Board Come on biographer What s with all the dialogue This isn t fiction with its fair share of dialogue uotation marks everywhere but this book often reads like that Hello this is a biography which means there is no way you know the precise conversations people had Having actual words coming out of actual people s mouths is just all wrong I think this is done for dramatic effect but you shouldn t be going for dramatic effect in a biography You say that Sandra has memory problems all the reason to avoid uoting conversations This complaint has an asterisk because every time I read a conversation I winced knowing you weren t writing truth So you can imagine how much I liked this book if I am willing to overlook this Shame shame shame sung to the tune of Aretha Franklin s Chain Chain Chain Biographer I share your interest in shame and I have been meaning to read Bene Brown s books on the subject but really discussions of her ideas don t belong in a biography It doesn t do the book any favors when you decide to play amateur psychologist Luckily you kept this discussion very short I forgive you I feel bad for you but At the end you talked very briefly about your own depression I hate to be callous but it s not cool to talk about your own psychology in a biography SorryThere That s over with So let me end by saying again that I loved this book The writing is lyrical and smart I loved the sentences I m especially impressed because the author s day job is as a lawyer The scenes both of Sandra s life and her jobs are hard to stomach but they are so well described you feel like you re watching a movie I recently talked lovingly about this book to a non reader acuaintance She couldn t understand why anyone would want to read this book What s the point she asked and I knew she meant it was too wild and weird for her and she had absolutely no interest in hanging out in gross houses with an oddball Well the point is it s a great book well told and riveting Plus I just love to read about anything
