Summary

Hannah Gadsby desvela los momentos que definieron su vida y la llevaron a subir al escenario con toda la verdad por delante.

«No hay nada más fuerte que una mujer rota que logra recomponerse». —Hannah Gadsby, Nanette
 
Nanette no fue solo un espectáculo de stand-up insuperable, fue también un arrollador éxito viral que cautivó al público por su sinceridad desgarrada y por su habilidad para generar a un mismo tiempo tensión y risa. El éxito mundial de Gadsby podría hacernos creer que la fama le llegó de la noche a la mañana, pero el camino que la llevó a lo más alto de la escena internacional fue en realidad bastante tortuoso.
 
En Los diez pasos hacia Nanette, Gadbsy nos brinda su retrato más íntimo: su adolescencia como persona queer en Tasmania (donde la homosexualidad fue ilegal hasta 1997), los trabajos itinerantes en Australia tras la universidad, sus duros encontronazos con la homofobia y la violencia sexual, su constante evolución como cómica, los diagnósticos tardíos de autismo y TDAH... y finalmente el hallazgo de lo que había de ser la esencia de Nanette, es decir, la renuncia a mofarse de sí misma en sus chistes, el rechazo de la misoginia y el compromiso moral con decir la verdad a toda costa.

Tan dura como divertida, Los diez pasos hacia Nanette es una «autobiografía incómoda» que, siguiendo la costumbre de su autora de jugar con las expectativas y las reglas de la comedia, nos acerca a una de las voces más explosivas e influyentes de nuestro tiempo.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

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,” according to 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.

Author Biography

Hannah Gadsby revolucionó el mundo del stand-up con el multipremiado espectáculo Nanette, agotando todas las entradas en Australia, Gran Bretaña y Estados Unidos. Su estreno en la plataforma televisiva Netflix y los consiguientes galardones Emmy y Peabody terminaron por consagrarla a escala mundial. El siguiente espectáculo de Hannah (su undécimo show en solitario) se llamó Douglas en honor de su perro: lo paseó a lo largo y ancho del planeta, agotó las localidades en cada recinto y fue nominada de nuevo a un Emmy. Antes de todo esto, Hannah había aparecido en la serie Please Like Me (de la plataforma Hulu) y participado en incontables festivales como monologuista en su Australia natal y Gran Bretaña. Asimismo, Gadsby tiene en su haber varios documentales sobre arte. Ha seguido la gira con su nuevo espectáculo, Body of Work.
