Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded

Bookseller Recommendation


“Hannah Hart rose to (internet) fame with her Youtube series, "My Drunk Kitchen". In "Drunk Kitchen" Hannah attempts, often haplessly, to cook dishes of varying difficulty at various levels of intoxication. She pairs witty puns with a fun-loving attitude. Buffering, her memoir, offers a look into an upbringing and life that starkly contrast her sunny exterior. Raised by a conservative Mormon father and a mother whose schizophrenia worsens as she grows up, Hannah struggles to raise herself and her younger sister while attempting to come to terms with her sexuality and mental health. It's an often devastating look at a young life, but is tempered by Hart's calm, thoughtful narration. It becomes obvious that although Hannah (accidentally) became an entertainer, her main ambition and strength is writing. The rougher chapters are usually split up by lighter fair, i.e. trading poems for water at Burning Man. The main subject of the later chapters becomes Hannah's quest to gain conservatorship over her mother, a nearly impossible task in her home state of California. Readers gain a look into our mental healthcare systems and their often inadequate interactions with the justice system. I came away inspired by Hannah's ability to face and overcome challenges, even while admitting that some will be lifelong struggles. I'd recommend this memoir to anyone interested in mental health, humor, pathos, and drunk lesbians!”

The wildly popular YouTube personality and author of the New York Times bestseller My Drunk Kitchen is back! This time, she’s stirring up memories and tales from her past.

By combing through the journals that Hannah has kept for much of her life, this collection of narrative essays deliver a fuller picture of her life, her experiences, and the things she’s figured out about family, faith, love, sexuality, self-worth, friendship and fame.

Revealing what makes Hannah tick, this sometimes cringe-worthy, poignant collection of stories is sure to deliver plenty of Hannah’s wit and wisdom, and hopefully encourage you to try your hand at her patented brand of reckless optimism.

Personal note:

Hello, my darlings! I am incredibly pleased to present BUFFERING: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded!

As a big fan of memoirs, I wanted to try my hand at writing about the events of my life that deserve a little more consideration than can be accomplished in 140-characters or a 6-minute vlog. Now on the cusp of turning 30, I'm ready to expose some parts of my life that I haven't shared before. Before, it was all about privacy, process and time. And now the time has come! I’m ready to put myself out there, for you.  

I'm a little nervous about all these vulnerable words going into the world, these tales about my love life, the wrestling I’ve done with faith, how I feel about sex and my family and myself. I’ve had a lot of trials, a lot of errors, but also a lot of passion. Here’s the thing--I've always found comfort in the stories shared by others, so I hope my stories, now that I feel ready to tell them, will bring you some comfort too.

And when you read this book please remember: Buffering is just the time it takes to process.
