    Ten Steps to Nanette
    Ten Steps to Nanette
    A memoir situation
    <b>The memoir from Australia's much-loved comedian, Hannah Gadsby, whose stand-up show and self-described swan-song, <i>Nanette</i>, played to sold-out houses in Australia, the UK and the US. Its launch on Netflix, and subsequent Emmy and Peabody wins, took <i>Nanette </i>(and Hannah) to the world.</b><br/><br/><b>Multi-award-winning Hannah Gadsby transformed comedy with her show <i>Nanette</i>, even as she declared that she was quitting stand-up. Now, she takes us through the defining moments in her life that led to the creation of <i>Nanette</i> and her powerful decision to tell the truth - no matter the cost.</b><br/><br/><b><i>'There is nothing stronger than a broken woman who has rebuilt herself.'</i> -Hannah Gadsby, <i>Nanette</i></b><br/><br/>Gadsby's unique stand-up special Nanette was a viral success that left audiences captivated by her blistering honesty and her ability to create both tension and laughter in a single moment. But while her worldwide fame might have looked like an overnight sensation, her path from open mic to the global stage was hard-fought and anything but linear.<br/><br/><b><i>Ten Steps to Nanette</i></b> traces Gadsby's growth as a queer person from Tasmania - where homosexuality was illegal until 1997 - to her ever-evolving relationship with comedy, to her struggle with late-in-life diagnoses of autism and ADHD, and finally to the backbone of Nanette - the renouncement of self-deprecation, the rejection of misogyny, and the moral significance of truth-telling.<br/><br/>Equal parts harrowing and hilarious, <b><i>Ten Steps to Nanette</i></b> continues Gadsby's tradition of confounding expectations and norms, properly introducing us to one of the most explosive, formative voices of our time.<br/><br/>'<i>Hannah is a Promethean force, a revolutionary talent ...This hilarious, touching, and sometimes tragic book is all about where her fires were lit</i>.' <b>-Emma Thompson</b><br/><br/>'Similar to her groundbreaking comedy specials Douglas and Nanette, Gadsby's memoir reads like a conversation with a longtime friend... A can't-miss memoir that will make readers laugh, cry, and everything in between.</i><b>' -Library Journal (starred review)</b><br/><br/><b>'</b><i>A witty and provocatively written life story.'</i><b> -KIRKUS</b>
