"Absorbing entertainment. I walked into Nazemian's walk-in closet
and didn't want to walk out." Kelly Oxford, author of Everything is
Perfect When You're a Liar
"Absolutely engrossing read from page one- Abdi Nazemian has
painted a world so vivid and real that even if you know nothing of
'Tehrangeles', by the end you feel as if you are a part it. I
simply COULD NOT put this book down " Busy Philipps
"At once wickedly funny and devastatingly moving, The Walk-In
Closet is a thrilling ride from start to finish. Nazemian surprises
with every turn he takes, telling a story that vividly illustrates
the price of living in a closet." Chaz Bono, author of Family
Outing, The End of Innocence and Transition
"I relished every moment of this warm, funny, brutally engaging
novel. Abdi Nazemian's Los Angeles is both uncannily familiar and
entirely foreign. Put this in the canon of LA literature: Nazemian
has written a side of Los Angeles prevalent in real life but rarely
seen in fiction." Katherine Taylor, author of Rules for Saying
"Ladies: If you like Shahs of Sunset you'll love The Walk-In
Closet. Abdi Nazemian shines a white hot, entertaining spotlight on
the ins and outs of Tehrangeles. Abdi will get your inner Persian
princess purring. Curl up and enjoy this fabulous debut " --
Jessica Bendinger, author of The Seven Rays, screenwriter of Bring
it On and Sex and the City
"The Walk-In Closet is a contemporary fable of love, loss and
redemption, set between cultures and between the sexes. Written at
a spanking pace, with humor, suspense and a heart, it captures the
voice of a generation and paves the way to a new genre of literary
fiction." Lila Azam Zanganeh, author of The Enchanter: Nabokov and
Kara Walker has never found much glamour in her own life,
especially not when compared to the life of her best friend Bobby
Ebadi. Bobby, along with his sophisticated parents Leila and
Hossein, is everything Kara always wanted to be. The trio provides
the perfect antidote to what Kara views as the more mundane
problems of her girlfriends and her divorced parents.
And so when the Ebadis assume that Kara is Bobby's girlfriend, she
willingly steps into the role. She enjoys the perks of life in this
closet, not only Leila's designer hand-me-downs and free rent, but
also the excitement of living life as an Ebadi.
As Kara's 30th birthday approaches, Leila and Hossein up the
pressure. They are ready for Kara to assume the mantle of the next
Mrs. Ebadi, and Bobby seems prepared to give them what they want:
the illusion of a traditional home and grandchildren. How far will
Kara be willing to go? And will she be willing to pull the Persian
rug out from under them when she discovers that her own secret is
just one of many lurking inside the Ebadi closet?
