The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo Summary

#1 New York Times Bestseller

"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 Tattoois 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 Bossypantsmeets Trainwreckmeets your long weekend." —TheSkimm

Amy is the best!5 star

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.55

More garbage spewed out by Amy Schumer.15


Wonderful5 star

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 books55
