I ordered Orange is the New Black from the library after catching an episode on TV. Until I was reading the book I didn't realise it was autobiographical!
It is always hard to know exactly how authentic an autobiography is but this one is worth a read. Not only do you get a bit of insight into the life of a prisoner, you also follow Piper's progress to what can be described as a redemption – or at the very least becoming a better person.
Piper manages to make some grim stuff hilarious at times while overall still pulling on the heart strings.
Not my usual thing – but I loved it. I haven't had time to watch the series yet so I have no idea how closely it follows the book.
