Review Excerpts

"Campbell . . . turns up the heat, ultimately delivering a compulsive listening experience and a memorable turn as Kerman." ---Publishers Weekly Audio Review

"Piper Kerman's literate account of life in the pen is an engaging work made even better by Cassandra Campbell's delivery." ---AudioFile

"I did enjoy the truth that inspired fictional events in the TV series. . . . you can see for yourself what’s fact and what’s fiction." ---BookRiot

"Cassandra Campbell ‘s narration is a special delight." ---SoundCommentary

"Fascinating. . . . The true subject of this unforgettable book is female bonding and the ties that even bars can't unbind." ---People

"This book is not just a tale of prisons, drugs, crime, or justice; it is, simply put, a beautifully told story about how incredible women can be, and I will never forget it." ---Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

"Reads like an estrogen-drenched version of Dostoevsky's The House of the Dead." ---Elle

"In Orange Is the New Black Kerman presents---devoid of self-pity, and with novelistic flair---life in the clink as less Caged Heat and more Steel Magnolias." ---Vanity Fair

PDF Sell Sheet for Orange Is the New Black

With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money ten years ago. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to fifteen months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424—one of the millions of women who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system. From her first strip search to her final release, Kerman learns to navigate this strange world with its strictly enforced codes of behavior and arbitrary rules, where the uneasy relationship between prisoner and jailer is constantly and unpredictably recalibrated. She meets women from all walks of life, who surprise her with small tokens of generosity, hard words of wisdom, and simple acts of acceptance. Heartbreaking, hilarious, and at times enraging, Orange Is the New Black offers a rare look into the lives of women in prison, why it is we lock so many away, and what happens to them when they're there.
