Amy Schumer fans, rejoice! The comedienne’s first book has a release date.
The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo (best title ever?), is set to hit bookstores on August 16, 2016. The news was announced Tuesday by publisher Jennifer Bergstrom, who had nothing but praise for the actress and now author.
“Amy Schumer is not an entertainer who can actually write,” said Bergstrom. “She’s a writer. Who also happens to entertain.”
According to a statement on Schumer’s website, the book (published by Gallery Books, a Simon & Schuster imprint) “will feature personal and observational stories from Schumer that range from the raunchy to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing.”

To make things even better, the title will also be available as an audiobook, read by Schumer herself. We’re already laughing just thinking about the “Trainwreck” star reciting the trials and tribulations of her life.
