Summary
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 before. 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 people 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. 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, Kerman’s story 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.
