Book Review: "The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo" by Amy Schumer

I pretty much love Amy Schumer.  From what I can tell, you know - not actually knowing her, she seems like a great, down to earth person that I would totally love to drink a bottle of wine with.  I don't necessarily love everything she does (as in maybe I don't laugh at all of her jokes, or think everything she does is hilarious) but I don't think that is necessary to like her.

So, it should not be any surprise that I wanted to read her recently released autobiography.  And you know what?  I like her even more now.  Not every chapter is laugh out loud funny, though most are quite amusing.  She has a way of telling a story that way... I felt like she was literally in my house telling me stories of her childhood, her boyfriends, life on the road and in comedy clubs, her family, and all that.  And what comes through between the lines?  She is fiercely bonded with her sister, she is passionate about being an activist for common sense gun control reform, and she's a feminist.  And while I already kinda sorta knew that about her, now there is no question and yes, I do like her even more now.
