Ten Steps to Nanette.

Following the emotional rollercoaster that was Nanette, Hannah Gadsby is releasing a memoir based on her experiences in comedy.

According to New York Times reporter Alexandra Alter, Gadsby’s first book follows “the funny and sometimes dark events of the Australian comedian’s life leading up to her realization that she had to quit comedy as she knew it.”

Ten Steps to Nanette was originally due for release in early 2018, but was pushed back after demands for the Nanette comedy show became too much.

Now, the book is slated for release early next year, but you can read a description for it below:

“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.”
