Amy Schumer. Frank, fearless and so freaking funny. Her story. In her own words.

Amy Schumer is taking the world by storm. In just a few short years, she's become a huge movie star, writing and starring in Trainwreck, acclaimed as a subversive comic genius, and collecting an Emmy and Peabody Award for her sketch comedy series, Inside Amy Schumer. She's outrageously funny, fantastically rude, sly, sharp, provocative, unexpected, original, fresh, rule-breaking. Her videos regularly go viral, her movie took in over $138M worldwide, and her book deal in the US made her over $8M. Is there nothing this woman cannot do?

In The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy looks back over her life for stories about her teenage years, her family, relationships, her career, good - and bad - sex, and shares the experiences that have shaped who she is: from the riches to rags story of her childhood and her teenage quest for normality (and boys) to becoming one of the most sought-after comedians on the planet and an outspoken advocate for women's rights.

Whether she's experiencing lust at first sight in the queue at the airport and discovering her boot camp instructor's secret bad habit, or discussing her father's multiple sclerosis or her lifelong battles with confidence, Amy Schumer proves to be an intelligent, fearless, and always entertaining storyteller. Her book will make you giggle uncontrollably, catch you completely off guard and answer this burning question - is it okay for a 36 year-old woman to still sleep with her childhood teddy bears?

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

I am a fan of Amy Schumer, so I thought I would really enjoy this book.
I didn't.
It is horribly narcissistic; yes, even for an autobiography! I have given up reading this after the latest chapter of hearing how hilarious she thinks she is and how great it is to be rich and be able to be in private jets or write huge cheques for her sister. Instead of coming across as a smart comedienne with great feminist humour, she comes across as a self indulgent brat.
It really is not an interesting or intelligent book. Very disappointed.
Best stick to her show.

        Fabulous book and great reminder that we're all just trying to navigate through the hand we've been dealt. I loved this book and found it hard to put down. Amy is brutally honest and that makes for a refreshing read. No regrets on buying it - thoroughly enjoyed!

            Wasn't what i expected and amy is certanly better at performing scripts than writing, but the book is still worth a read.

              I was a bit worried about this book as sometimes autobiographies arent as good as you think they will be. But this was very Amy Schumer. It felt very conversational and was funny with a serious note towards the end. Very heart felt and i was not disappointed.

                  This book wasnt what I expected but was good none the less. Amy is a very funny chick and has endured a lot of heartache in her life. Upon completion, I definately respect her a lot more

                      I thoroughly enjoyed reading Amy's first book. I'm a huge fan of her comedy and her stance on many issues, and this book didn't disappoint. I have a close friend who loves Amy too and I've just purchased her a copy as a gift (because I didn't want to share mine!) Easy to read, insightful and relatable. Loved it!
