Turns out readers won’t have to wait too long to read Amy Schumer’s highly-anticipated book of personal stories, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo. As the Inside Amy Schumer and Trainwreck writer and star announced Tuesday on Twitter, the book will be published by Gallery Books on Aug. 16.
“Amy Schumer is not an entertainer who can actually write. She’s a writer. Who also happens to entertain,” said Gallery Books publisher Jennifer Bergstrom in a release. The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo is now available for pre-order at Simon & Schuster and other book retailers.
Last September, Schumer confirmed that she would debut a memoir in 2016, and at the time she said in a statement, “Believe it or not, there’s actually more I have to say.” The confirmation came after EW reported that her agent David Kuhn had circulated proposals cross Manhattan publishing houses.
