Like Fey, Schumer has proven her durability.

Schumer this week won an Emmy for her sketch show Inside Amy Schumer, which she both wrote and starred in.

The book will "offer personal and observational stories from Schumer that range from the raunchy to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing", Gallery Books said in a statement. Now Amy Schumer is set to add author to her list of achievements following an eye-watering multi million book deal.
