Product description

Review

'Krasnostein's playful yet heartfelt debut is one of the most arresting works of biography you will read in a long time.' -- The Guardian

'Through countless encounters with the fetid, the neglected, and the downright tragic, Parkhurst has found meaning and peace, and [author] Krasnostein a singular subject whom she approaches with well-deserved awe.' -- Booklist

'[Sandra] is one of the most extraordinary characters you will ever find in a work of non-fiction … The Trauma Cleaner is a disturbing and fascinating read with a heavy, beating heart at its centre … [Krasnostein] shows how a writer can empathise and engage with a subject yet still paint a realistic portrait.' -- The Australian --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
