"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.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES 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. Praise for Orange Is the New Black “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

“A fun read for fans of the Netflix series . . . And don’t worry: These dishes are way better than the food the inmates actually eat on the show” (People).

With sixty-five recipes, twelve sidebars that expand upon the fiction of the show, and sixty photographs from the show featuring favorite characters and memorable moments, Orange Is the New Black Presents: The Cookbook adds new dimensions to any fan’s obsession. The recipes cover three square meals a day, plus snacks/sides, desserts, and drinks. They include Red’s Chicken Kiev, Miss Claudette’s Coconut Cake, and Prison Punch.

This collection of eighteen chapters by talented philosophical minds probes some of the many lessons to be learned from Orange Is the New Black (mostly the addictive Netflix comedy-drama but with some attention to the best-selling real-life book by Piper Kerman). The show and the book that inspired it both dramatically highlight the troubling, stressful situation of millions of incarcerated Americans. How do the show’s shower scenes shed light on the classical mind-body problem? How can we make our lives meaningful when our options are curtailed by authority? What does it mean to manipulate someone, and why is it bad? What can we learn about the peculiarity of human beliefs from Pennsatucky’s notion of the gay agenda? Is Litchfield Prison a preparation for life outside—or just a scale model of life outside? What could the governors of Litchfield learn from Jeremy Bentham and his panopticon? How is it that even in prison we find ourselves condemned to be free? Why is one of the worst things about prison being forced to see who and what we really are? It so happens that life in prison is absolutely full and overfull of philosophical implications. Orange Is the New Black and Philosophy stays close to the characters and scenes of the TV show, applying insights from ethics, existentialism, metaphysics, epistemology, and political philosophy. The book is aimed at thoughtful fans of this amazingly fine TV show, who want to learn more about its disturbing issues.

Summary of Orange Is the New Black by Piper Kerman | Includes Analysis Inside this Instaread Summary: -Overview of the entire book -Introduction to the characters in the book -Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book -Reader's Perspective Preview of the earlier Chapters: 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........
