Product description

Review

"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)

"[An] excellent new essay collection... [The book] is, contrary to the postmodern parfait that is Schumer’s standard act, decidedly un-layered. It is Schumer, the celebrity, shedding Schumer, the schtick. It is a memoir that is also an unapologetic paean to self-love. In that, The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo finds a new way for Schumer to be radical: It treats feminine self-confidence not in the way it is too often regarded, as a BrainyQuotable truism or an inborn gift or a fuzzy aspiration or, indeed, a source of shame, but rather as a skill like any other—something that is developed and worked at and thus, most importantly, earned... Schumer’s stories are really, particularly good." (The Atlantic)

"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)

"Beyond the many powerful and empowering takeaways of The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo—from loving the hustle to self-love—perhaps the must overlooked is that of a woman's right to not only make mistakes, but to make art out of them." (Salon.com)

"If you find yourself feeling guilty for laughing at her pain, just keep in mind she's probably laughing with you, unapologetically, in true Amy Schumer fashion." (Vulture)

"This is your happy hour with Amy Schumer. You'll get everything from tips on how to be a standup comedian, to the story of her one one-night stand. It's "Bossypants" meets "Trainwreck" meets your long weekend." (TheSkimm)

"A poignant yet shockingly amusing book." (Lena Dunham Lenny)

"[Schumer is] a concert pianist of comedy: keeping a steady rhythm of jokes with her left hand, adding deeply political, immensely feminist flourishes with her right... [She] knows what people want her for: she knows they like her jokes, and her delivery, and her vulnerability. But she also knows what she wants them for: to read, to listen, and to understand the world as she sees it. And she might end up changing it a little before she's done." (The Pool (UK))

"Schumer chronicles her life with digestible stories that impart powerful messages through a kind of logic of the opposite: she makes mistakes so that we can learn from them." (RollingStone.com)

"Surprisingly moving and unsurprisingly hilarious." (Esquire)
