Publisher's Summary

"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 costar)
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. Down to earth and relatable, frank and unapologetic, Amy Schumer is one of us: She relies on her sister for advice, still hangs out with her high school pals, and continues to navigate the ever-changing boundaries in love, work, and life.
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.

So disappointed

Surprisingly, her timing and delivery (of her own material) was mediocre.

Despite the upfront disclosure that this book isn't autobiographical, it was suffocating so.

Her preachy segment on gun violence was too much. I agree with what she says but it felt self-indulgent and out of place.

Disappointing and depressing

This isn't a bad book per se, but I think I would have appreciated it a lot more if it balanced the hard stories with some lightness. I understand Schumer wants to express her life experiences, but I laughed (for a split second) once in the span of an 8+ hour book. She has to realize that people are buying it because she's a known comedian. The delivery was very subdued and the non-stop sad stories left me thinking this should have been her second book, not her first. If you buy this, know going in that it's anything but a funny book. Even if her stories had made me think, I would have taken away more. I just felt like I was locked in a room with a very depressed person.
