I think its funny that Denise complains that stuff that happens in the series didn't happen in the book.

The book was a memoir based on Piper Kerman's life in jail.

The series took that skeleton of an idea about a transient money transporting lesbian for a drug cartel turned yuppie heterosexual fiancée headed for prison and ran with it in ways that make advertisers and subscriber seeking media companies sit up and take notice.

I certainly did.

Yes indeed. From reading some reviews of the book, it seems her actual memoir may show little remorse (it's just a dumb thing she did in her '20s and got caught doing), not much self-searching in prison, and is more self-serving than what Jenji Kohan has come up with here.
