The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning
- How to free yourself and your family from a lifetime of clutter
- By: Margareta Magnusson
- Narrated by: Juliet Stevenson
- Length: 2 hrs and 37 mins
A charming approach to putting your life in order so your loved ones won't have to. There's a word for it in Swedish: Döstädning, literally, 'death cleaning'. Swedish-born Margareta Magnusson is, in her words, 'aged between 80 and 100'. When her husband died, she had to downsize her home. The experience forced her to recognise the power of 'death cleaning' and the concerns that must be addressed in order to do it with thought and care.
Happy thoughts on mortality....

Practical and entertaining
I enjoyed the very personal touch that Margareta gave to this guide to death cleaning. Very well read by Juliet Stevenson.
