I read Orange is the New Black before it was serialized on Netflix and so when Wolters' story became available, I was interested to read the counter point. She told her story without whining, sensationalizing or blaming anyone else for her situation. ( )

Needed editing for repetition.

It's very clear that this could have been told in a one-page article in a magazine. Wolters doesn't have enough to say for a memoir, and this is just filled with descriptions and long "memories" of discussions. There's just nothing here. It didn't need to be a full-length memoir. It's annoying to read all the details of what her cat "typed" by sitting on the keyboard, or what exact healthy foods Piper bought for her apartment. Because it wouldn't be enough to say "healthy foods"? We actually need to hear spinach, yogurt ... ugh. ( )

The real-life Alex Vause from the critically acclaimed, top-rated Netflix show Orange Is the New Black tells her story in her own words for the first time—a powerful, surprising memoir about crime and punishment, friendship and marriage, and a life caught in the ruinous drug trade and beyond.

Fans nationwide have fallen in love with Orange Is the New Black, the critically acclaimed and wildly popular Netflix show based on Piper Kerman’s sensational #1 New York Times bestseller. Now, Catherine Cleary Wolters—the inspiration for Alex Vause, Piper’s ex-girlfriend, friend, and sometimes-romantic partner on the show—tells her true story, offering details and insights that fill in the blanks, set the record straight, and answer common fan questions.

An insightful, frustrating, heartbreaking, and uplifting analysis of crime and punishment in our times, Out of Orange is an intimate look at international drug crime—a seemingly glamorous lifestyle that dazzles unsuspecting young women and eventually leads them to the seedy world of prison. Told by a woman originally thrust into the spotlight without her permission—Wolters learned about Piper’s memoir in the media—Out of Orange chronicles Wolter’s time in the drug trade, her incarceration, her friendships and acquaintances with odd cellmates, her two marriages, and her complicated relationship with Piper. But Wolters is not solely defined by her past; she also reflects on her life and the person she is today.

Filled with colorful characters, fascinating tales, painful sobering lessons, and hard-earned wisdom, Out of Orange is sure to be provocative, entertaining, and ultimately inspiring.
