NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Multi-award-winning Hannah Gadsby broke comedy with her show Nanette when 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 Nanette and her powerful decision to tell the truth--no matter the cost. "Hannah is a Promethean force, a revolutionary talent. This hilarious, touching, and sometimes tragic book is all about where her fires were lit."--Emma Thompson ONE OF THE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2022--Entertainment Weekly, PopSugar "There is nothing stronger than a broken woman who has rebuilt herself," Hannah Gadsby declared in her show Nanette, a scorching critique of the way society conducts public debates about marginalized communities. When it premiered on Netflix, it left audiences captivated by her blistering honesty and her singular ability to take them from rolling laughter to devastated silence. Ten Steps to Nanette continues Gadsby's tradition of confounding expectations and norms, properly introducing us to one of the most explosive, formative voices of our time. Gadsby grew up as the youngest of five children in an isolated town in Tasmania, where homosexuality was illegal until 1997. She perceived her childhood as safe and "normal," but as she gained an awareness of her burgeoning queerness, the outside world began to undermine the "vulnerably thin veneer" of her existence. After moving to mainland Australia and receiving a degree in art history, Gadsby found herself adrift, working itinerant jobs and enduring years of isolation punctuated by homophobic and sexual violence. At age twenty-seven, without a home or the ability to imagine her own future, she was urged by a friend to enter a stand-up competition. She won, and so began her career in comedy.              Gadsby became well known for her self-deprecating, autobiographical humor that made her the butt of her own jokes. But in 2015, as Australia debated the legality of same-sex marriage, Gadsby started to question this mode of storytelling, beginning work on a show that would become "the most-talked-about, written-about, shared-about comedy act in years" (The New York Times).            Harrowing and hilarious, Ten Steps to Nanette traces Gadsby's growth as a queer person, to her ever-evolving relationship with comedy, and her struggle with late-in-life diagnoses of autism and ADHD, finally arriving at the backbone of Nanette: the renouncement of self-deprecation, the rejection of misogyny, and the moral significance of truth-telling.… (més)

well-written, but a book you need to read in small doses for all the pain...

much darker than i expected. reading this in 50-100-page increments at a time, then putting it aside for awhile... there's enough bad in my life without reliving hers... ( )

Getting in tune with Hannah Gadsby has taken me a while. A slow burn. An emerging revelation. I’m a straight, white, cis, anglo, old man. Peeling back a lifetime of wrong socialisation requires work. Hannah’s been a help. Nanette was like a jolt awake. And now this book invites us inside her head to the ground of her phenomenal talent. Thank you so much. ( )

Anyone who admired Hannah Gadsby's Netflix specials, Nanette and Douglas will want to give this book a look.

For the first half, Gadsby recounts her 1980s and '90s childhood in conjunction with a history of homophobia in Australia, contrasting, paralleling and overlapping. The second half is her adulthood with all its additional traumas, therapy and diagnoses as she creates and refines her many different stand-up shows. It's heavy stuff, but as in her specials it alternates between keeping it light with regularly placed jokes and making it riveting during the dramatic moments.

I'm rating this 4 stars, but I'm rounding up from 3.5 stars because sometimes things get vague or brushed over and some subjects come up only to disappear without a full accounting. I read the paper book, but almost wish I did the audiobook thing more often, because being narrated by Gadsby would probably move this into an even higher level. ( )

Best for:
People who like memoirs, especially ones that go in unexpected places.

In a nutshell:
Comedian Hannah Gadsby tells of her life growing up in Tasmania, her career in comedy, and how she built her one-of-a-kind show Nanette.

Worth quoting:
“The lies of a vulnerable minority should never have been put into the hands of the majority in a media landscape that is all too happy to be powered by the fumes of a toxic debate.”

“I find joy in my life where I once couldn’t because I was too busy trying to do the ‘right’ thing instead of checking in with my own needs first.”

Why I chose it:
I’m a fan of Gadsby’s comedy, and the way she constructs a show.

Review:
In this memoir, Gadsby shares so much of her life, and she does so in an interesting way. I read a LOT of memoirs, and this is one that took me a bit by surprise. It shouldn’t have, but it did. Like much of her comedy, Gadsby’s book is clever, intelligent, unique and unexpected.

The entire section about the 1990s is really well done, with each year discussed in a clever way highlighting things that happened that year in Australia and worldwide, as well as in her life. As someone completely unfamiliar with Australian politics, I appreciated hearing her take on things, and how the debate over the right for gay people to live their lives without prosecution, and then the right for people to marry who they loved, and how that deeply impacted her as a queer person.

She shares her trauma, but it isn’t traumatic, if that makes sense. She doesn’t provide detail unless she needs to. As always, she is careful with her words and edits where its needed.

I started the book and read the first couple of chapters but then put it down for a month. It’s a long book, and while its so well-written, it wasn’t an easy read. Then yesterday, which was a holiday here in the UK, I decided to finish it. I read basically all day, and I finished it, and I think that was the best way to take it in. All in one or two sittings. Some books lend themselves easily to chapter by chapter; I think this one is best when the reader can really dive into Gadsby’s story.

Something to note, which again, shouldn’t be a surprise. My partner was sitting next to me basically the entire time I was reading the book, and when I finished, he commented that I didn’t laugh at all while reading it. And it is true that I didn’t laugh out loud because it’s not a funny memoir. There are parts where I chuckled inside - I mean, Gadsby is brilliant, and that translates well to the page - but this is not a funny book. It is a serious memoir that takes on serious topics.

Ten Steps to Nanette: A Memoir Situation

I Picked Up This Book Because: Memoirs are my jam.

Media Type: Audiobook
Source: Library
Dates Read: 7/16/22 - 7/22/22
Stars: 4 Stars
Narrator(s): Hannah Gadsby

I honestly found this fascinating. Comparing growing up in a family that is quite opposite from mine on the other side of the planet to the things I knew growing up. I enjoyed this time Ms Gadsby shared with us. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows but I would never expect that from her brand of comedy.

Art is restoration: the idea is to repair the damages that are inflicted in life, to make something that is fragmented -- which is what fear and anxiety do to a person -- into something whole.

Technically, this is my second book. But I wouldn't bother trying to find a copy of my first effort as it was only published in an edition of one, and I've misplaced it. [Introduction]
