'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.

I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow
I really enjoyed this book. I had laugh out loud moments and a couple of teary moments in this book. I love Amy and it was great to learn about her family and life growing up.
I was disappointed when it ended!
I am in awe of Amy Schumer after listening to this book. Emotional, raw, funny, honest and reap is everything I would use to describe this.
What I thought I was going to get (funny stories) vs what I did get (humanly honest stories about her life and an unedited authentic and raw recount of her life) had me hooked from the first word.
She is so incredibly relatable that I have become a massive fan, because, well.. who else has the balls to tell these kinds of stories and still laugh at themselves?
I have no doubt her and I would be besties if we met!
If you only buy one book this year, it needs to be The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer. 5 freaking incredibly amazing stars!
In typical Amy style this look at her life and early career journey is hilarious and in your face. What surprised me is that at times it was also heartbreaking. Amy is obviously an exceptional talent, but here she is also searingly honest, and opens up about dealing with sexual assault, domestic abuse, a traumatic family life, and coming to accept and live herself regardless. Wonderful to hear it read by her also.
I loved this book, it was crudely honest and sooooo funny. I love her take on life and women and wish there was a kids version for my 14 year old daughter, there are some unintentional, powerful lessons there for everyone.
"A heartfelt, funny and moving story by a strong woman!"
Absolutely loved every second of this book and took some serious life lessons from it, loved the humor and touching stories! I feel it has somewhat changed my outlook on life in some ways and have recommended this book to all my girlfriends. Thank you
"Laugh & cry out loud !"
I love this book!! I think Amy has so many gifts!! I laughed out loud so many times! And I surprisingly cried during the end of chapter Mom! I made notes of words of wisdom to pass on to my teenage nieces!! I think if you like to laugh , cry & smile this is the book for you!! Thxs Amy!
"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.
"Couldnt turn it off"
I loved this book, it was interesting and witty start to finish. I laughed out loud at times, I didn't want to turn it off.
The book needs changing rather than her performance which was ok
Disappointment. I was a huge fan of Trainwreck and persuaded lots of friends to see it, but this must be the least funny book by a comic I've read. Maybe Amy's intention was not to be funny but if so the book's marlketing is at fault as is the jokey title - a pun on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Amy makes some worthwhile points about the poor messages given to young girls by the media, about sexism on the standup circuit (and business generally) and about gun control. However overall the book is just dull and full of pointless lists - for example in a list of Things I Hate Amy lists the Big Bang Theory (the TV show not the theory but apparently can't be bothered to give us a reason for the hatred.
"Not Funny and WAAAAAY too serious"
If this had been a 4 or 5 star book.
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.
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.
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.
Just bad - if you're looking for laughs, avoid.
I listened to 7 chapters and found Amy sounding very shallow and self appreciating. I would get my money back if I could....
To be honest I think this book is so overrated. I was so bored listening to it. The story is all over the place, and at points very pointless. Listen to Tina Fey or Lena Dunham for a good autobiography.
Absolutely loved this book! Amy is so honest and straight with every story she tells. She is an amazing woman for what she has achieved. Love her even more after listening too her stories in her own words.
"I wish this book was longer 💜"
Absolutely loved this book. Amy is so honest! She tells it exactly like it is. super funny also. Definitely worth listening to.
funny the whole way through but with some serious messages. love it and 100% recommend it!
"Best biography I've read in years"
I enjoyed this book so much, listening to Amy talk about her past was funny and engaging and I like her serious bits too. I have even learnt stuff about myself which I wasn't expecting regarding how I think about weight, she's inspired me not worry so much and I'm going to pass the book to my teenage daughters.
Well done Amy your natural at writing and so honest.
"Love this girl, brilliant book"
Funny, touching, honest
yes... couldn't stop listening
Every teenage girl should listen to parts of this book, there is a lot of swearing and conversations about her bits, be warned but if you know Amy you know she lays herself bare and is brilliant because of it. She found something she loved and worked her arse off in order to make it work, inspirational!
