Orange Is The New Black: The Real Story with Piper Kerman

In her memoir Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Woman's Prison,
Piper Kerman recounts the 15 months that she spent in the Danbury
Correctional Facility.

The stories of the women she met while in prison raise issues of friendship and family, mental illness, the odd cliques and codes of behavior, the role of religion, the uneasy relationship between prisoner and jailor, and the almost complete lack of guidance for life after prison.
