Publisher's Summary

Amy Schumer narrates her own raucously funny memoir, a personal collection of stories about the American comedian before her meteoric rise to fame. Unflinchingly honest and tongue-in-cheek, this is a moving portrait with emotional resonance and genuine laugh-out-loud moments.

'2016 Best Audiobooks' selection, AudioFile Magazine.

The highly anticipated first audiobook from award-winning comedian, writer, producer and actress, Amy Schumer.

In The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy shares stories about her family, her relationships, her career, good - and bad - sex, recounting the experiences that have shaped who she is today: from the riches to rags story of her childhood to her teenage quest for popularity (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, discovering her boot camp instructor's secret bad habit, or candidly discussing her father's multiple sclerosis, Amy Schumer proves to be a fearless, original, and always entertaining storyteller. Her audiobook will move you, make you laugh, catch you completely off guard, and answer this burning question: is it okay for a 35 year-old woman to still sleep with her childhood teddy bears?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "Not Funny and WAAAAAY too serious"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If this had been a 4 or 5 star book.


    Has The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo put you off other books in this genre?

    No i've read some great books from this genre. Amy Peohlers Yes Please, and Tina Fey's Bossy Pants being two of the best. This one was just bad, boring, rambling, hypocritical, serious and sad.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Amy Schumer?

    She was as good as anyone for this book I suppose, though I found her serious and on the verge of tears moments especially grating.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment that the book didn't really meet expectations. Mild anger at some of the hypocritical nonsense spouted about aspects of sexual relationships between men and women. Uncomfortable with some of the stories. Sad far far too often for the autobiography of a comic.


    Any additional comments?

    Just bad - if you're looking for laughs, avoid.

    "love love love"

    Embarrassing ly, I'd never seen Any Schumer on TV or seen Train wreck before I read this book. I liked the sound of the reviews and I wasn't disappointed. It had me laughing out loud and touches on subjects I didn't expect: gun crime, domestic abuse and MS. It was really insightful, exploring issues of gender equality in Hollywood, comedy and film making.

    "Equally funny and touching"

    I really enjoyed this. particularly hearing Amy's words as she intended them to be read. It's funny as expected but also goes into the more serious aspects of life.

    "True Amy Style. No holds barred."

    Amy has a soothing voice and coupled with a simple straight from the heart narration makes this audiobook uniquely magnetic. It is like hugging your favourite pillow when going to bed.

    "The more you listen, the more you get hooked"

    I was a bit worried this audiobook was going to be too hearted with constant jokes all the way through... I was happily proven wrong. This was a very honest and interesting book, with definite laugh out loud moments but Also very serious ones. I loved it and couldn't stop listening!

    "Funny and warm"

    I loved Amy's autobiography which I found candid, surprising and light even during some of the heavier chapters. Amy seems to have a hopeful outlook and voice that I really enjoyed listening to, and her story made me reflect on how much time I put into making myself and others laugh and enjoy life. I liked this book even more than I might have because I had thought I had purchased it a few months ago (when I had accidentally bought Amp Poehler's book instead) - oops! Both books v good!

    "She is better live"

    Most of this same out sad and dry to my ears. I did enjoy the stories and she makes some very fine points on growing up and making the normal human decisions that shape us into who we are.
