Reviews

One of the most charming, funny, and motivating books I've read in some time... Magnusson is an absolute delight. This book is so much more than lifestyle tips. It's full of life. Magnusson's candid humor and unassailable spirit comes through on each page... The best way to prepare for death is to live a good life, which Magnusson has done. We're lucky that she shares so much of it - in stories of gratitude, family, work, and love * * Buzzfeed * *
Proustian... A primer on how to winnow your belongings before you die, so you don't burden your family... Ms. Magnusson is the anti-Kondo, who takes us on a charming and discursive tour of her own stuff -- Penelope Green * * New York Times * *
Packed with positive and practical suggestions, this slim volume could change your life -- JULIET STEVENSON
For those planning to declutter, The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning tackles the subject with charm and wit . . . Margareta Magnusson mingles practical tips with memoir and wisdom * * Good Housekeeping * *
[A] frank and honest approach to mortality, and our complicated relationship with hoarding * * Scotsman * *
Short, appealing and practical . . . A gentle acknowledgement of the fact that life is short and that you should truly treasure the things that really matter * * The Wee Review * *
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 * * Vogue * *
Witty, useful and oddly profound * * TIME * *
Sure, it sounds morbid, but it's actually a pretty smart idea. Death cleaning isn't about getting rid of all your stuff, but rather streamlining your life so you're only holding onto what makes you happy . . . it's about so much more than dusting and sorting * * Elle Decor * *
