Summary of Orange Is the New Black by Piper Kerman | Includes Analysis
Preview of the earlier Chapters:
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
