Reviews

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

"I loved this book. It's a story rich with humor, pathos, and redemption. What I did not expect from this memoir was the affection, compassion, and even reverence that Piper Kerman demonstrates for all the women she encountered while she was locked away in jail. I will never forget it."--Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

"This book is impossible to put down because [Kerman] could be you. Or your best friend. Or your daughter."--Los Angeles Times

"Moving . . . transcends the memoir genre's usual self-centeredness to explore how human beings can always surprise you."--USA Today

"It's a compelling awakening, and a harrowing one--both for the reader and for Kerman."--Newsweek
