The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo - Amy Schumer

Jeg kendte ikke Amy Schumer på forhånd. Havde ikke set hverken hendes film eller de standup-shows hun laver.
Jeg havde måske hørt navnet ude i periferien, men ikke vidst hvad hun stod for.

Derfor kan det også virke lidt mærkeligt at jeg kastede mig over denne biograf, men det skyldes måske fordi der var flere af bloggerne der havde læst den og sagde gode ting om bogen.

Og det er en underholdende og god bog. Amy er halvjøde og vokset op i en lidt dysfunktionel familie, der gik fra velhavende til bankerot, til kernefamilie til skilsmisse, hvor moren har en affære med en af Amys venners fædre, og en far der lider af MS.

Amy Schumer er vittig og hele bogen har et godt flow, og så kommer hun faktisk ind på nogle væsentlige pointer ifm. fx sex kontra overgreb, om kvindeidealerne og om taknmelighed over velstand og success.

Hun virker generelt som en sympatisk person, så det kan være at jeg skal have set noget af hendes arbejde på et senere tidspunkt.

Omvendt så vil jeg også tro at jeg har glemt denne bog om mindre end en måned.

Omtale: 
'Amy's got your back. She's in your corner. She's an honesty bomb. And she's coming for you.' (Actress Tilda Swinton, Trainwreck costar) The Emmy Award-winning comedian, actress, writer, and star of Inside Amy Schumer and the acclaimed film Trainwreck 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. In The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy mines her past for stories about her teenage years, her family, relationships, and sex and shares the experiences that have shaped who she is - a woman with the courage to bare her soul to stand up for what she believes in, all while making us laugh. Down to earth and relatable, frank and unapologetic, Amy Schumer is one of us: She relies on her sister for advice, still hangs out with her high school pals, and continues to navigate the ever-changing boundaries in love, work, and life. 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.
