Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law-abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life-changing prison can really be.
When Chapman (Taylor Schilling) is heading to her cell while the party is going on, they show a shot of her books on the table. The book you see, The Depths of Despair, by James Bolenbaugh. He didn't write this book, it was by Matt Forbeck. James Bolenbaugh is the producer of the show.
Get some fuckin' therapy, man!
The timeline of the show often changes; the first season indicates being set in 2010 (upon entering prison, Piper begs Larry to not watch the latest Mad Men (2007) without her, and Larry is shown the latest episode from season 4, which originally aired in 2010). However, season 5 references the San Bernarndino shootings, which occurred in 2015. This cannot be possible as Piper's prison sentence was for 15 months and only about a year has passed in those five seasons.
