"Amy Schumer's book will make you love her even more. For a comedian of unbridled (and generally hilarious) causticity, Schumer has written a probing, confessional, unguarded, and, yes, majorly humanizing non-memoir, a book that trades less on sarcasm, and more on emotional resonance." —Vogue

"The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo is an alternatingly meditative, sexually explicit, side-splittingly hilarious, heart-wrenching, disturbing, passionately political, and always staggeringly authentic ride through the highs and lows of the comedic powerhouse's life to date." —Harper's Bazaar

"This is your happy hour with Amy Schumer...It's Bossypants meets Trainwreck meets your long weekend." —TheSkimm

“Amy’s got your back. She’s in your corner. She’s an honesty bomb. And she’s coming for you.
—Actress Tilda Swinton and Trainwreck co-star

The Emmy Award-winning comedian, actress, writer, and star of Inside Amy Schumer, Hulu's Life & Beth, and the acclaimed film Trainwreck has taken the entertainment world by storm with her winning blend of smart, satirical humor. Now, Amy Schumer has written a refreshingly candid and uproariously funny collection of (extremely) personal and observational essays.

In The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy mines her past for stories about her teenage years, her family, relationships, and sex and shares the experiences that have shaped who she is—a woman with the courage to bare her soul to stand up for what she believes in, all while making us laugh.

Ranging from the raucous to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing, this highly entertaining and universally appealing collection is the literary equivalent of a night out with your best friend—an unforgettable and fun adventure that you wish could last forever. Whether she’s experiencing lust-at-first-sight while in the airport security line, sharing her own views on love and marriage, admitting to being an introvert, or discovering her cross-fit instructor’s secret bad habit, Amy Schumer proves to be a bighearted, brave, and thoughtful storyteller that will leave you nodding your head in recognition, laughing out loud, and sobbing uncontrollably—but only because it’s over.

  • You people should be ashamed

    By luvlie😇✨👍
    You have to be awful to body-shame an empowered woman who is confident in her body. I’m sorry, it’s simply the truth. I know there’s beauty in each and every one of your souls. Now go live your best life you gorgeous people.

    I really wanted to like this book. Taking a break from it. Maybe I’ll pick it up again in the future.
  • Amy is the best!

    By Lena Ellie
    Amy is ridiculously funny, brutally honest and should most definitely get more praise! In this book Amy gives us insight into her past experiences, childhood, how she rose to fame, and her work ethic/creative processes— without sugar coating anything. It was very enjoyable to see Amy share her story and humor on paper. Looking forward to her future work, attending her shows and always supporting her! Keep it up Amy- we need more people like you.

    More garbage spewed out by Amy Schumer.
  • Wonderful

    By laymoneyy
    Her story is very humerus and exotic. The way she explains everything from her point of view is all things we would like to say but never really have the balls too. She is a very extravagant writer, I look forward to reading more of her books
