Biography & Autobiography. True Crime. Nonfiction. HTML:

Before she was a trauma cleaner, Sandra Pankhurst was many things: husband and father, drag queen, gender reassignment patient, sex worker, small businesswoman, trophy wife ... But as a little boy, raised in violence and excluded from the family home, she just wanted to belong. Now she believes her clients deserve no less.

A woman who sleeps among garbage she has not put out for forty years. A man who bled quietly to death in his living room. A woman who lives with rats, random debris and terrified delusion. The still life of a home vacated by accidental overdose.

Sarah Krasnostein has watched the extraordinary Sandra Pankhurst bring order and care to these, the living and the dead-and the book she has written is equally extraordinary. Not just the compelling story of a fascinating life among lives of desperation, but an affirmation that, as isolated as we may feel, we are all in this together.

This story found within the pages of THE TRAUMA CLEANER One Woman’s Extraordinary Life in the Business of Death, Decay, and Disaster was unexpected. I find myself a bit mislead because I wanted this to be about a woman who cleaned up messes and made it easier to cope and move on from the traumatic event of Death what I got was a book about a woman who transitions from being a man to a woman. When I start off my review and say I feel mislead I so not wish anyone to think I am disappointed this is still a three-star read. I find Sandra’s candor refreshing. While helping people deal with there lives and delimas we get a glimpse of who Sandra was and who she wanted to be. If you take anything away from this book I hope that acceptance and self-awareness is what you get. The strength that is depicted in these pages is not something to take lightly. I am so glad to live in a day and age where I can say that people need to do what makes them feel like the best versions of themselves and not give into what society wants them to be. Sarah Krasnostein is very courageous in telling Sandra’s story just as Sandra is amazing for opening up and being herself regardless of the rough road. Rhank you netgalley and all parties for my arc.

Wow! This was a fabulous book. Raw, revealing, touching, sad and kind. I wonder why I had waited so long to read this. ( )

Wow! This was an amazing read... not what I expected. Sandra’s life is undeniably sad. The cleaning is almost secondary (although I ‘enjoyed’ grimacing through the descriptions of them too) but are woven into Sandra’s story, shedding light onto her character and how she is able to deal with her clients with absolute patience, firmness, care, and with no judgement.

This is a beautiful biography ( )

The premise and the story are phenomenal. The addition of the vignettes about trauma cleaning adds a rich dimension to the entire story. I would have given this book a 4, but unfortunately the author tries a bit too hard and in trying to sound profound, falls flat. ( )

Before I go on with this short history, let me make a general observation—the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.
—F. SCOTT FITZGERALD, THE CRACK-UP
