Our queen Amy Schumer is writing a book
It’s official: Amy Schumer is totally killing 2015. First, she began the year with an envy-worthy friendship with Jennifer Lawrence, complete with Instagram-chronicled adventures and a dream screenwriting collaboration which is sure to produce one of our new all-time favorite movies. Then on Sunday she won an Emmy for her ground-breaking show, Inside Amy Schumer (for which she is a writer AND star)! Schumer has been on a life roller-coaster that is only going up, and we are more than happy to be along for the ride.
Although she has accomplished more this year than most do in an entire career, she shows no signs of stopping. Next up on the take-over-the-world-to-do list? A book! That’s right—Schumer is about to join the ranks of comedy lady greats like Tina Fey (Bossypants), Amy Poehler (Yes, Please), and Mindy Kaling (Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, and her recently released follow-up Why Not Me?) on our bookshelves/e-Readers.
Entertainment Weekly just reported that Schumer sold a collection of comedy essays last Friday to an as-of-yet unnamed publishing house for somewhere between $8-$10 million. What?!? Word is that competition was so fierce that “editors had to sign a non-disclosure agreement in order to get their hands on Schumer’s essays and offer up a bid before even meeting with the comedian.” Way to go, Amy!
No word yet on when we can expect the book to drop, but if her hilarious screenplay debut Trainwreck is any indication of what we are in for, we can’t wait!
