Amy Schumer’s New Book Out in August
Female comedians like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Chelsea Handler seem to strike gold in the publishing industry. Now Amy Schumer, star of Trainwreck and Inside Amy Schumer, will (hopefully) be joining the ranks of those bestselling authors.
According to USA Today, Schumer’s book, entitled The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo—a clever play on Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo—is now set to release on August 16th. Schumer inked the book deal last September to the tune of $8-$10 million.
The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo will reportedly “feature personal and observational stories from Schumer that range from the raunchy to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing,” as stated by the publisher. Gallery Books publisher Jennifer Bergstrom also made sure to note that “Amy Schumer is not an entertainer who can actually write. She’s a writer. Who also happens to entertain.”
