Catherine Cleary Wolters, the real-life inspiration for the character Nora Jansen/Alex Vause in Piper Kierman’s book, “Orange Is The New Black,” has penned her own non-fiction memoir. “Out of Orange,” chronicles  Wolters’ time in prison, her love affairs, friendships and complicated relationship with Kierman, plus the time leading up to her arrest.

Appropriately, Barbara Rosenblat, who stars as Miss Rosa on the hit TV version of “Orange Is The New Black” on Netflix, has recorded the audiobook version of Wolters’ memoir — and plays all of the characters in the book. Along with her long acting career, Rosenblat is an award-winning, internationally-acclaimed audiobook narrator, having nearly 500 books in her resume to date.

“Out of Orange” is being published in May by HarperOne, just in time for the June 12 premiere of “Orange Is The New Black” season three.
