Amy Schumer--the award-winning, wise cracking, Anna Wintour-impersonating writer, producer, director and comedian extraordinaire--has now (finally!) penned her first book, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo. In this collection of essays, infused with her signature acerbic wit, she reveals that she's fallen in love in the airport security line (that's how long they've gotten), is actually an introvert, and I'm guessing a Stieg Larsson fan. More importantly, you will learn what has given Schumer the courage to be what actress Tilda Swinton describes as "an honesty bomb," a feminist phenom, and someone who is influencing the cultural conversation one clever barb at a time.
We asked Ms. Schumer what she's been reading lately. Here are a few of her favorites.
