The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo
By Amy Schumer

This was a funny one. I laughed out loud several times. There was a lot of creativity in the humor and structure of the book. Her diary passages with commentary from her adult self are a hoot. Her perspectives on society, dating, working in comedy/tv/hollywood are on the ball and often pretty cathartic. Portions of the autobiographical sections can be a bit boring. Sometimes her telling of her family life is devoid of jokes, and without the jokes her family life isn't that interesting. Also her editor really should have just deleted the chapter where she talks about how rich she was, and how she wasn't always rich, but was rich for a little while, and is now once again rich and now look at all the things she can buy OMG! But don't worry she's very grateful and that's what's important. In the next edition please remove that chapter because it was awful. But keep the bit about the Dancing on the Ceiling birthday party, that made me LOL, and it keeps popping into my head at random moments. Amy Schumer funny, good job!
