Last fall, Amy Schumer got a reported $8 million advance to write a book, and soon you will be able to read that book, though you will not be receiving eight million dollars yourself, because life is unfair. The comedian’s The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo is coming on August 16 and it will feature “personal and observational stories from Schumer that range from the raunchy to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing” (not unlike The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, except with fewer Swedes, more jokes, and not at all like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo). You can pre-order the book now to prep for late summer’s hottest comedian-penned memoir in advance. There’ll also be an audiobook version read by Schumer herself, so no matter where you are — on a train, in a plane, in a forest, or Jet-Skiing with Jennifer Lawrence — Amy will keep you company.
