Synopsis

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?
