Katherine Ryan is to publish her autobiography.

Titled The Audacity, it will be available to read from September.

Publishers explain: "From the star of The Duchess and the host of [podcast series] Telling Everybody Everything, this is the debut book from superstar comedian Katherine Ryan.

"Detailing Katherine's journey from a naïve ex-Hooters waitress fresh off the boat from Canada to comedy megastar, chapters will cover How to Potty Train Your Baby at 10 Months, How to Cut Off Your Racist Aunties, How to Marry Your High School Boyfriend and How to Co-Parent when you're a Single Mum."

Ryan says: "While I've been very blessed to have worked in comedy for over a decade, The Audacity gives me the opportunity to connect with people more fully and honestly than a panel show allows. I've learned to be a sharp-shooter on stage, but there are so many stories that I'm eager to tell in more sincere, longer form. I hope it gives people a laugh, an insight, and hopefully some encouragement on how to live their most fulfilled, authentic lives."

The Audacity will be available in hardcover, eBook and audiobook formats from 30th September.

Blink Publishing, which is distributing the title, say: "The Audacity combines Katherine's unerring ear for the perfect line with the warmth, compassion and hard-won wisdom that makes up a life on and off stage."

Susannah Otter from Blink comments: "There were few reasons to be cheerful last year, but the prospect of this brilliant book and the joy of working with Katherine and her team kept everyone at Blink going throughout. Katherine's comedy always gets straight to the heart of the matter, whether that matter is the egregious nature of 'say no to this' in Hamilton or the importance of a decent surgeon. She not only makes us all laugh, she teaches us to watch for the pitfalls in life and scramble out of them as gracefully as we can manage. I can't wait for the world to read The Audacity, which combines her unerring ear for the perfect line with the warmth, compassion and hard-won wisdom that makes up a life on and off stage."

The Audacity is available to pre-order now.
