About Felice Cohen

Known nationally and internationally as the woman who lived in one of the world’s smallest apartments, Felice Cohen is the award-winning author of the bestselling books Half In: A Coming-of-Age Memoir of Forbidden Love (about a lesbian, age-gap affair she had at 23 with her boss, a 57-year-old woman that she kept secret for 30 years), 90 Lessons for Living Large in 90 Square Feet (…or More) (inspired by the YouTube video of her tiny NYC studio with over 25 million views) and What Papa Told Me, about her grandfather’s life before, during and after the Holocaust. What Papa Told Me has been endorsed by Elie Wiesel and Yad Vashem in Israel, is taught in schools across the country, has been translated into Polish, and has sold over 35,000 copies around the world. Felice has been featured on Good Morning America, NBC, CBS, NPR, Time, Globe & Mail, New York Daily News, the Daily Mail and more. She also speaks around the country about how living tiny made her life larger as well as offering tips on organizing and decluttering. What enabled Felice to “live large” in that tiny studio is that she has been a professional organizer for over 25 years. She splits her time between NYC and Cape Cod.
