Sarah Krasnostein on The Trauma Cleaner

Readings St Kilda — 112 Acland St, St Kilda, Victoria, 3182

Sarah Krasnostein has captured the hearts and minds of Readings staff with her brilliant work of creative non-fiction, The Trauma Cleaner.

This book is an exploration of the extraordinary life and work of Sandra Pankurst. Born a little boy who was shunned by his adopted family, she’s been a husband and father, drag queen, one of Australia’s first gender reassignment patients, a sex worker, a small businesswoman and a trophy wife… but this book focuses on perhaps her most intriguing aspect of all: her work as a trauma cleaner, working with people who’ve suffered their own enormous trauma or loss to give them a practical clean start.

Krasnostein will chat about the book with St Kilda bookseller Kim Gruschow.

Free, but please book here.
