THE MARS ROOM

Or­ange Is The New Black is like a Dis­ney film in com­par­i­son to this story of a woman serv­ing two con­sec­u­tive life sen­tences for killing her stalker (the book’s ti­tle takes its name from the strip club where she worked at the time of the mur­der). Though fic­tional, Kush­ner spent time in women’s pris­ons for re­search, re­sult­ing in an un­in­hib­ited look at be­ing dis­ad­van­taged and on the wrong side of the law. ($32.99, Jonathan Cape)
