Hannah Gadsby is to write her Memoirs

After her hugely successful award winning Edinburgh show, Nanette, Hannah Gadsby is writing her debut book Ten Steps to Nanette. The book will feature various stories about Hannah’s formative years and is due for publication in 2018.

Hannah’s Australian publisher Allen & Unwin say: “Hannah Gadsby always dreamt of being a cool kid but she had to accept that, just like her childhood dream of being a dog, “normal” isn’t always possible.

“In the vein of David Sedaris, Hannah’s memoir is a string of stories that draws together the varied funny and sometimes dark events of her life, compelling readers to understand the damage society can visit upon those (like Hannah) who find themselves on the outside.”

Hannah had announced she would cease performing stand up after Nanette, although she will be touring the UK with this strikingly honest show.

Ten Steps to Nanette has not yet confirmed a UK publisher, but will be published in Australia in February next year.
