Overview

Amy Schumer took the American stand-up comedy scene by storm with her provocative, biting humor after finishing fourth on NBC's Last Comic Standing. Her success came after years on the stage at obscure New York nightclubs and exhausting tours. Uniquely caustic and sharp-tongued, her irreverent and scatological humor has reinvented open-mic comedy. In The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, which has been a number-one New York Times bestseller, Schumer's collection of vignettes detail her ascent to fame, full of challenges and setbacks, but also key moments in her life. She tells of her relationship with her manipulative and unstable mother, her father's sudden degenerative illness, her relationships—with lovers, but also with stuffed animals, her children (food, or perhaps wine), and phobias (gyms, strong and silent types). Schumer has starred in movies like Snatched, I Feel Pretty, and Trainwreck. She is the creator of Comedy Central's Emmy Award-winning Inside Amy Schumer.?Amy Schumer irrumpió en la escena del stand-up norteamericano como un terremoto tras años de duro aprendizaje en los escenarios de oscuros clubs de comedia neoyorquinos y agotadoras giras cuando, tras quedar cuarta en el reality show "Last Comic Standing" de la NBC, se convirtió en una de las humoristas más cotizadas y provocadoras del showbiz. Lenguaraz y cáustica como pocas, su humor escatológico y procaz ha reinventado la comedia de micrófono abierto. En "La chica del tatuaje encima del culo", que llegó al número 1 en el ranking de bestsellers del New York Times, Schumer relata en una serie de episodios breves e intensos no solo su ascenso profesional, lleno de dificultades y tropiezos, sino también, de manera hilarante pero también brutalmente sincera, momentos centrales de su vida como la tensa relación con una madre manipuladora e inestable, la repentina enfermedad degenerativa de su padre, sus relaciones sentimentales —ya sea con sus amantes o con sus peluches—, sus filias (la comida, por supuesto, o el vino) o fobias (los gimnasios, el machismo recalcitrante, y un largo etcétera). Amy Schumer ha protagonizado películas como "Descontroladas" ("Snatched", 2017), "¡Qué guapa soy!" ("I Feel Pretty", 2018) o "Y de repente tú" ("Trainwreck", dirigida por Judd Apatow en 2015), de la que también es coautora del guion, y es la creadora del programa de sketches humorísticos "Inside Amy Schumer" de Comedy Central, galardonado, entre otros premios, con un Emmy.

Reviews

"Amy Schumer's book will make you love her even more. For a comedian of unbridled (and generally hilarious) causticity, Schumer has written a probing, confessional, unguarded, and, yes, majorly humanizing non-memoir, a book that trades less on sarcasm, and more on emotional resonance." —Vogue, on the English-language edition

"The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo is an alternatingly meditative, sexually explicit, side-splittingly hilarious, heart-wrenching, disturbing, passionately political, and always staggeringly authentic ride through the highs and lows of the comedic powerhouse's life to date." —Harper's Bazaar, on the English-language edition
