Amy Schumer’s New Book Title Will Exceed Your Expectations

1 minute read

Schumer fans, mark your calendars for fall 2016: that’s when the Comedy Central star’s newly announced memoir will hit shelves.

The book, called The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, will be a series of essays on her life and views, ranging “from the raunchy to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing,” her publisher Gallery Books tells The Hollywood Reporter.

In a statement on the news, Schumer said she was “thrilled” to be working on the book: “Believe it or not there’s actually more I have to say.”

Entertainment Weekly had previously reported that Schumer sold the book for a fee between $8 and 10 million; The Hollywood Reporter says a source put it at $9 million. That’s bigger than recent advances for her fellow entertainers Tina Fey, Aziz Ansari and Lena Dunham.

Schumer has her hands full with ambitious projects these days: she’s currently writing a screenplay with new friend Jennifer Lawrence and will appear in her first HBO comedy special, Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo, on Oct. 17.
