Inspiration for ‘Orange’ character has book deal

By From page A10 | August 17, 2014

NEW YORK — The real-life Alex Vause of “Orange is the New Black” is ready to tell her story.

Cleary Wolters has a deal with HarperOne for the memoir “Out of Orange,” scheduled for May 2015.

In a statement released Thursday to The Associated Press, the publisher said that Wolters’ book would tell of her time in prison and her “complicated” relationship with Piper Kerman, Wolters’ former friend and lover.

Kerman’s “Orange is the New Black” was a best-selling prison memoir adapted into the video series that has been a sensation on Netflix.

Wolters said in a statement that her life was “an unbelievable saga” with a surprising new chapter.

On the Netflix show, Vause is played by Laura Prepon. Taylor Schilling stars as Piper Chapman, the stand-in for Kerman.
