A new original series from Netflix 'Not just a tale of prisons, drugs, crime, or justice; it is, simply put, a beautifully told story about how incredible women can be' Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love With her career, live-in boyfriend and loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the rebellious young woman who got mixed up with drug runners and delivered a suitcase of drug money to Europe over a decade ago. But when she least expects it, her reckless past catches up with her; convicted and sentenced to fifteen months at an infamous women's prison in Connecticut, Piper becomes inmate #11187-424. From her first strip search to her final release, she learns to navigate this strange world with its arbitrary rules and codes, its unpredictable, even dangerous relationships. She meets women from all walks of life, who surprise her with tokens of generosity, hard truths and simple acts of acceptance. Now an original comedy-drama series from Netflix, Piper's story is a fascinating, heartbreaking and often hilarious insight into life on the inside.

I liked this book so much more than I expected I would! I've watched the Netflix series, in which Piper is an unbearable brat. But the Piper who eloquently relates her memoir doesn't afford herself any coddling, is straightforward in accepting her responsibility, and uses her story to reflect on her...

4.0 Memoirs Are the New Black
I listened to the audiobook after having watched the first season of the show on DVD. (I don't have cable, so I binge-watch DVDs from the library and am always at least one season behind everyone else. No spoilers, please!) Having enjoyed season one of the show, I thoroughly enjoyed the memoir t...
