"This is your happy hour with Amy Schumer... It's Bossypants meets Trainwreck meets your long weekend." -- TheSkimm

"Amy's got your back. She's in your corner. She's an honesty bomb. And she's coming for you." --Actress Tilda Swinton and Trainwreck co-star

The Emmy Award-winning and Tony-nominated comedian, actress, writer, and star of Inside Amy Schumer and the acclaimed films Trainwreck and I Feel Pretty has taken the entertainment world by storm with her winning blend of smart, satirical humor. Now, Amy Schumer has written a refreshingly candid and uproariously funny collection of ( extremely ) personal and observational essays.

Ranging from the raucous to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing, this highly entertaining and universally appealing collection is the literary equivalent of a night out with your best friend--an unforgettable and fun adventure that you wish could last forever. Whether she's experiencing lust-at-first-sight while in the airport security line, sharing her own views on love and marriage, admitting to being an introvert, or discovering her cross-fit instructor's secret bad habit, Amy Schumer proves to be a bighearted, brave, and thoughtful storyteller that will leave you nodding your head in recognition, laughing out loud, and sobbing uncontrollably--but only because it's over.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "One of Schumer's recurring bits as a comic and performer, who writes and stars in her own TV series, Inside Amy Schumer, is that she's a consummate oversharer who leaves little to the imagination. It shouldn't be a surprise, then, that her book, besides being laugh-out-loud funny, is also pretty daringly personal. (Schumer's introductory note to readers is quickly followed with An Open Letter to My Vagina.) It will come as a surprise that she's an introvert, that she had a storied career as a teenage shoplifter, that she's never, ever going to live in L.A., and that there are still 44 other things readers won't know about her, all handily gathered in the chapter, Things You Don't Know About Me, in case you wanted to skip ahead but don't.If, somehow, George Carlin were to come up with an updated list of, say, 15 words you can never say on television, they would probably all be in here, and there's lots of, well, sex stuff from the writer whose comedy special was called Mostly Sex Stuff, but many of the I can't believe she wrote that are provoked by heavy things, too. She's candid about her dad's multiple sclerosis, the abusive relationship she couldn't pry herself from in her early twenties, and the bummer that was the international press tour following the release of the successful movie she wrote and starred in, Trainwreck. The moment she learned that two women died in a shooting at a showing of the film is tied for the worst in her life, and precipitated her fervent interest in speaking up for stricter gun control.Schumer is obviously grateful for her success and its spoils, but she makes it clear how hard she's worked for it all, which is in itself refreshing. This is one woman's paean to comedy (standup remains her favorite part of what she does), hard work, and, boldly, herself. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This book, and the multimillion-dollar advance Schumer received, have been buzzed about for ages. Readers are primed.--Bostrom, Annie Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In her first book, the Emmy Award-winning comedian offers an entertaining and eclectic collection of 30-plus essays, including "An Open Letter to My Vagina" and "Forgiving My Lower Back Tattoo." Her prose, like her popular comedy act, is plucky, forthright, hilariously raunchy-and honest. Though she claims the book is not an autobiography (at the age of 35, Schumer asserts, it's too early to share her life story), readers will learn of her childhood on Long Island, born into "New Money" (her father ran an exclusive baby furniture shop). By the time she's 10, however, challenging times have fallen on the family: the business is lost, her parents eventually divorce, and her beloved alcoholic father is diagnosed with MS. Schumer works various jobs (waitressing, pedicab driver, etc.) but ultimately is true to her passion for inspiring laughter. The book's centerpiece is a comparatively longer essay on her career, revealing the hard work of touring and the dedication, heartaches, missteps, and triumphs on the path to stand-up success. Along with off-the-wall one-liners, anecdotes, and confessions, Schumer shares some solemn experiences, such as bodysurfing with her disabled dad for the last time, and her involvement in an abusive relationship with a boyfriend ("When you're in love with a man who hurts you, it's a special kind of hell, yet one that so many women have experienced"). Amid ill-fated dates, alcohol-induced blackouts, and late-night eating binges, Schumer, in these candid, well-crafted essays, wears her mistakes "like badges of honor." (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
