PORTLAND, OR; February 9, 2022— A CLOSET FEMINIST follows the misadventures of 20-something Bella Hirsch as she navigates the world of work and the mystery of sudden romance. Bella hops from New York’s whirlwind to a tony grad school in Philadelphia, and discovers not just love, but a surprising ambition. Fast-paced and witty, this is a romantic comedy with a morality tale wrapped inside.

Praise for A CLOSET FEMINIST
"Sarett’s penetrating observation couples with her sparkling prose to bring new life and vigour to the popular theme of reinvention of the self. Warm, funny and a wonderful read from both the entertainment and the literary point of view, A Closet Feminist crackles with life on every rapidly-turning page."--Tabitha Ormiston-Smith, author of Barefoot Tango
"I'm in love with Bella. She's satrical. She's self-deprecating. She's in love and she's in trouble. And somehow, despite her sense of being moderately ordinary except for her taste in vintage dresses, a trio of gorgeous, creative and successful men share my reaction to Bella, the heroine of Carla Sarett's brilliantly funny and romantic novel A Closet Feminist. They're all in love with Bella."
--Dan Essman, author An Apostle at the Kit Kat
