With her career, live-in boyfriend and loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the rebellious young woman who got mixed up with drug runners and delivered a suitcase of drug money to Europe over a decade ago. But when she least expects it, her reckless past catches up with her; convicted and sentenced to fifteen months at an infamous women's prison in Connecticut, Piper becomes inmate #11187-424. From her first strip search to her final release, she learns to navigate this strange world with its arbitrary rules and codes, its unpredictable, even dangerous relationships. She meets women from all walks of life, who surprise her with tokens of generosity, hard truths and simple acts of acceptance. Now an original comedy-drama series from Netflix, Piper's story is a fascinating, heartbreaking and often hilarious insight into life on the inside.

Tom Marcus wurde vom MI5 rekrutiert, um sein Land zu schützen – undercover gegen interne und externe Bedrohungen, den Terror und zum Schutz der größten Geheimnisse des Landes. Tägliche Entscheidungen, die Leben oder Tod bedeuten. Ein nie enden wollender Kampf, den viele seiner Kollegen nicht überleben sollten. Bei einem seiner Einsätze nahm er die Identität eines verwahrlosten Obdachlosen an – und stellte bei einem Verdächtigen außergewöhnliche Verhaltensweisen fest. Zeichen, die vielleicht niemand außer einem ausgebildeten Agenten bemerkt hätte. Tom ließ das Haus stürmen. Gefunden wurden einige Gewehre und sechs selbstgebaute Bomben. Diese hätten, so zeigte sich später, 60 Schulkinder töten sollen, die sich auf der Rückfahrt von einer Klassenfahrt befanden. Dieser fesselnde Bericht über einen Krieg, der um unserer Sicherheit willen geführt wird, weiht uns in eines der am besten behüteten Geheimnisse Europas ein – den britischen Geheimdienst MI5.

Die Memoiren eines Jahrhundertautors Was macht das Leben eines Schriftstellers aus? Mit dem Welterfolg Der Spion, der aus der Kälte kam gab es für John le Carré keinen Weg zurück. Er kündigte seine Stelle im diplomatischen Dienst, reiste zu Recherchezwecken um den halben Erdball – Afrika, Russland, Israel, USA, Deutschland –, traf die Mächtigen aus Politik- und Zeitgeschehen und ihre heimlichen Handlanger. John le Carré ist bis heute ein exzellenter und unabhängiger Beobachter, mit untrüglichem Gespür für Macht und Verrat. Aber auch für die komischen Seiten des weltpolitischen Spiels. In seinen Memoiren blickt er zurück auf sein Leben und sein Schreiben. »Mitreißend, unterhaltsam und spannend wie einen Thriller erzählt le Carré in Der Taubentunnel sein Leben.« Buchjournal „Le Carré ist ein so lebenskluges Buch gelungen, dass man seine zahlreichen Aphorismen am liebsten auswendig lernen möchte.“ Frank Herold, Berliner Zeitung Zu unserer Autorenseite: www.ullstein.de/lecarre

PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary of the book and NOT the original book. Orange Is the New Black by Piper Kerman - A 30-minute Instaread Summary Inside this Instaread Summary: • Overview of the entire book • Introduction to the important people in the book • Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book • Key Takeaways of the book • A Reader's Perspective Preview of this summary: 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...

Orange Is The New Black And Philosophy

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.

Sontag and the Camp Aesthetic: Advancing New Perspectives marks 50 years of writing and cultural production on the phenomenon of camp since Susan Sontag’s 1964 cornerstone essay “Notes on ‘Camp’.” It provides cutting-edge theory and understanding on ways to read and interpret camp through a collection of essays from historical, theoretical, and cultural perspectives. It includes varied subject areas including camp icons, stylistics periods, and important and representative texts from television, film, and literature. These essays create a scholarly conversation that understands camp as not only signifier or aesthetic but also a language, mode, and style that goes beyond its initial linguistic and semiotic guise. The contributors, representing a diverse group of established and rising scholars, explore camp as a largely queer genre that includes varying modes of understanding of desire and of the self outside a hegemonic model of heteronormativity.
