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.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary of the book and NOT the original book. Orange Is the New Black by Piper Kerman - A 30-minute Instaread Summary Inside this Instaread Summary: • Overview of the entire book • Introduction to the important people in the book • Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book • Key Takeaways of the book • A Reader's Perspective Preview of this summary: Chapter 1 In 1993, twenty-four year old Piper Kerman was at the Brussels airport, waiting for her suitcase after arriving from Chicago via Paris. She was dressed like a fashionable businesswoman, but was nervous because $10,000 that belonged to a West African drug lord was hidden in her suitcase. It arrived on a later flight. She dashed out of the airport, accidentally skipping a stop in Customs. Kerman had graduated from Smith College. Though she came from a Boston family of high achievers, doctors and lawyers, she majored in theater. Most of her friends got real jobs. She had no plan, though, and ended up waitressing in Northampton. She hung out with a crowd of similarly situated young people, having affairs with lovers of both sexes, dressing in black, and getting tattoos. During this time, Piper began an affair with a lesbian neighbor, Nora Jansen. Nora was a drug smuggler, transporting cash and heroin for a West African drug lord named Alaji. He also happened to be her sister, Hester’s, boyfriend. One day, Nora came home with a suitcase full of cash and a new Mazda Miata convertible. Piper enjoyed the perks of Nora’s lifestyle, but the drug activity made her nervous. When a friend decided to move to San Francisco, Piper saw it as a way out of her relationship with Nora. However, Nora suggested they move in together there. Not only did Piper stay with Nora, she used Nora’s cover story to explain the move to her family. Nora’s story was that she and a friend, Jack, were starting a magazine, so Piper told her family she would be working for the magazine in San Francisco...

"Finally, an anthology that brings together a useful selection of essays on Orange is the New Black...Netflix's most watched series. Authors pay close critical attention to the show's diverse assemblage of characters, focusing on its production of gender, politics, and intersectional identities. Scholars, teachers, and fans of the show will welcome this book’s timely contribution to discussions of one of the most-talked television shows in years."--Dana Heller, Old Dominion University, author of Loving The L Word "A timely critique of the popular Netflix series, this volume explores the nexus of race, class, gender and sexuality as both a site of resistance to and reification of oppressive stereotypes, brilliantly illustrating the myriad ways in which the show simultaneously creates and contests hegemonic discourse through its diverse characters and compelling storylines."--Joanne Gilbert, Alma College "Just when you thought queer representations had become as predictably normative as an episode of Modern Family, along comes Orange is the New Black, a break-out hit for Netflix and an exciting, whirling mess of a series that raises crucial questions about gender, race, class, and sexuality. This wonderful new collection of critical essays plumbs the depths of OINTB, and offers up trenchant analyses that will be of great interest to scholars and students of popular culture, feminist and queer studies, and everyday fans who just can’t get enough of these outside-the-box characters."--Suzanna Walters, Editor-in-Chief, Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society. Since its 2013 premiere, Orange Is the New Black has become Netflix’s most watched series, garnering critical praise and numerous awards and advancing the cultural phenomenon of binge-watching. Academic conferences now routinely feature panels discussing the show, and the book on which it is based is popular course material at many universities. Yet little work has been published on OINTB. The series has sparked debate: does it celebrate diversity or is it told from the perspective of white privilege, with characters embodying some of the most racist and sexist stereotypes in television history? This collection of new essays is the first to analyze the show’s multiple layers of meaning. Examining Orange Is the New Black from a number of feminist perspectives, the contributors cover topics such as gender, race, class, sexuality, transgenderism, mass incarceration and the prison industrial complex, disability, and sexual assault.
