  • “The most powerful and authentic memoir I’ve read in a long time!”
  • “It was entertaining, funny and heartbreaking all at once.”

  • Ten Steps to Nanette was an eye-opening insight into the life of someone who is neurodivergent as well as an international comedy star. I laughed and cried out loud in many sections. It was an amazing book.”
