Amy Schumer is at it again, this time with a new book. The cover of the book The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo features Schumer posing topless with her back to the camera, though the image implies that the memoir’s contents are explicit and deeply personal thoughts and expositions. The cover image for The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo comes only a short time after one fan was publicly humiliated for attempting to capture Schumer on film.
Amy Schumer Bares Her Backside For The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo
The title of Schumer’s new book is a play on words, parodying The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and features the fully nude upper torso of Amy, as she turns her head to look over her shoulder at the camera. As Amy looks at the camera, her expression is anything but modest, giving indications that fans of Schumer’s stand-up routines know exactly what can be expected of The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo‘s contents.
Supporting the idea that Amy Schumer has written a memoir consistent with her bold and revealing stand-up routines and interview remarks, her own website describes the book as something classically Schumer.
“The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo will feature personal and observational stories from Schumer that range from the raunchy to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing.”
Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, will be handling the publication of Amy Schumer’s book.
“Amy Schumer is not an entertainer who can actually write,” Gallery Books publisher Jennifer Bergstrom said in a statement. “She’s a writer. Who also happens to entertain.”
Amy suggests that fans can expect future books to be forthcoming in a statement that reveals her interest in writing and in sharing her innermost thoughts.
“Believe it or not, there’s actually more I have to say.”
Fan Fights Back, After Amy Schumer Publicly Chastises Him Over Photograph
An incident earlier in the week made news, as Amy Schumer criticized a Greenville, South Carolina, fan for trying to take the comedian’s picture on a public street. Schumer revealed that the man came up on her in a way that left her feeling startled, but Amy went on to reveal that she reacted negatively to the entire exchange. Schumer says that the man ran up next to her and began shoving his camera in her face, insisting that she take a picture with him.
“I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid. Yes legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying no. I will not take picture with people anymore and it’s because of this dude in Greenville,” Schumer said in the post, which included the posting of a picture of Leslie Brewer, the fan in question.
Brewer has since responded to Schumer’s description of the situation, stating that the incident was not nearly as confrontational as Schumer suggested in her postings and online statements. Instead, he said he only approached Schumer when other pedestrians began remarking that they had spotted Amy walking down the street. Leslie said he did have his camera with him and wanted to get a picture with the Trainwreck star, but added that he stopped as soon as she asked him not to take pictures.
“I did it in a non-threatening way,” Brewer said. “She says I got all up in her face, and it was completely different from the video.”
Brewer gave a thumbs up in agreeing to delete the images he had already taken of Schumer, but it seemed Amy was the one unwilling to let the incident pass. She took a picture of Leslie and told him she would make an example out of him, sharing the picture with her millions of followers.
“You’re a celebrity,” he said. “I understand you want to blast me but that’s petty, that’s beneath you.”
Later, Amy Schumer wrote that she would still take photos with fans, but only when she feels up to it.
