The Trauma Cleaner: One Woman's Extraordinary Life in the Business of Death, Decay, and Disaster
I love books about ordinary (non-famous) people who have led extraordinary lives, told with great insight and wonderful writing. Sandra Pankhurst suffered terrible neglect as a child, then after marrying and having children, underwent gender reassignment, then went on to suffer more trauma in her life as she trundled through many jobs before finding her calling to set up a trauma cleaning business, which is more about dealing with people empathically than it is about cleaning a hoarder's house. Every few chapters start with a new client and a new trauma clean, but quickly veer off into the annals of Sandra's history. A great read. Actually, a great Audiobook listen.
