Amy Schumer‘s memoir, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, her first foray into the literary world, has hit number 1 on the New York Time’s bestseller list for nonfiction.
Amy has been promoting the book for the last few months and last week it debuted. The book is a solid collection of personal stories from the Inside Amy Schumer actress’ childhood, relationships, and her life in Hollywood.
Ah! #thegirlwiththelowerbacktattoo thank you so much to my sister in law Cayce DuMont for writing this with me and my sister Kim for her help wth it as well.

As noticed by HelloGiggles, one of the highlights of the book is when Amy relatably describes what it was like she had a crush on her trainer:
“On the evolution chart, this guy and I were at opposite ends. I was dragging my knuckles, sniffing around for bananas, throwing my own feces at tourists, and he was a Disney prince but with more sex appeal. I reached out and was all, ‘Can you help me with my diet?’ and he was all, ‘Sure, let’s meet up at this healthy-eating place,’ and I was all, ‘Here comes the bride.’”
The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo is available at bookstores all over the place. I mean, seriously, I bought mine at a drugstore.
