Other Peoples Dirt

( 2 )

Overview

Louise Rafkin never imagined she'd end up cleaning refrigerators or have a preference for a particular brand of paper towels. But what started out as a quick way to earn a living became a curious preoccupation with all things clean... and messy. Witty and revealing, Other People's Dirt is a thoroughly irreverent look at the untidy business of life.

Listen Up' Award for Best Humor Audio of 1998 by Publishers Weekly

"...Rafkin, who narrates the audio, reveals her own metamorphosis first as an investigative child who entertains herself with hypothetical stories of her neighbors based on their laundry on the clothesline... Using cleaning as her vehicle and her abilities as a writer, she draws an interesting and thought-provoking picture of the housekeeping world. She also feeds a need, whether conscious or unconscious, to escape our own world through knowing other people's dirt."—ForeWord

"[Rafkin's] voice is musical, offering the maturity of a woman in her thirties and the impishness of youth."—Audiofile

Author Bio: Louise Rafkin's articles and essays have appeared in numerous periodicals including The New York Times, The Utne Reader, Ladies' Home Journal, Los Angeles Times, and The Boston Phoenix. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area.

Narrator Bio: same as author bio
