'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.
The way she makes fun of herself. The moment she jumped through the 'replica' of an aircraft and hit herself. I love the way she depicts her way up the ladder of show-business. She is so down to earth.
never heard of her before
Thank you, Amy for being yourself. For being bold, beautiful and funny!
"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.
"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.
"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.
This Woman has a serious lower back problem...JK JK . Funny enough to keep you going till the end. Amy can do another movie of her funeral alone....... Sometimes wrong sometimes right but always funny so its alright.
"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!
I loved it. Amy worked hard for what she has achieved. no shortcuts to success
"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!
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!
