The Emmy Award-win­ning co­me­dian, ac­tress, writer, and star of In­side Amy Schumer 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.
