Book Review of Other People's Dirt: A Housecleaner's Curious Adventures

Other People's Dirt: A Housecleaner's Curious Adventures
reviewed on


Housecleaner extraordinaire Louise Rafkin reads her own work as efficiently as she cleans bathtubs and snoops through the letter pile. Rafkin's voice is pleasantly modulated and well suited to her dry humor in Other People's Dirt, a parallel tale of her cleaning habits and socio-spiritual explorations.

Entertaining, read in one sitting. Not particularly deep or meaningful, but jaunty and fun. I liked the tips on what to do if you hire a housecleaner; that's worth the price of the book.
