About the Author

Margareta Magnusson was born in Gothenburg in Sweden. She has worked for many years as an artist and has had her work exhibited as far as Singapore and Hong Kong. She has death cleaned many times, for herself and others.


Packed with positive and practical suggestions, this slim volume could change your life

Describing her own age as "between 80 and 100," she advocates a methodical, thoughtful process, perusing the contents of each room in your home at your own pace before deciding whether to gift, recycle, ditch, etc. That's the "gentle" in the art: Magnusson's is a soothing, grandmotherly voice
