Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0452280818, Paperback)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. Vacuum-cleaner sound effects demarcate chapters in this nearly unabridged version, whose brief chapters are punchy and well suited to audio. (Running time: three hours, two cassettes) --Barrie Trinkle

Louise Rafkin takes us on an intimate tour of people's lives and reveals just how much she knows about a person based on what she finds in the house. She knows who's on a diet (Weight Watchers in the freezer), who's having marital problems (sheets on the sofa), and who' having sex (items on the nightstand). In Other People's Dirt, Rafkin dispenses her own kind of household hints with an altogether original point of view.
