Behind author Jenny Han’s smile is the story of a breakup. Eight years ago, she met a dream dentist—gentle, caring, warm—and fell into a routine of blissful cleanings. Then, her dentist dropped a bombshell: She thought Jenny should get braces and jaw surgery to correct a misalignment. Other specialists disagreed, but Jenny found herself strangely conflicted about standing up to this woman who’d spent so much time poking around in her mouth.

Lots of comedians poke fun at themselves for laughs. And as Hannah Gadsby explains, her deep unease with success, coupled with the invisibility she often felt as a queer, autistic woman, turned self-deprecation into an automatic response on stage and off. But now Hannah has made a conscious decision to view the world in a new way—without a filter of shame.
