Jodi Rosenfeld recalls life in Boston for her debut novel

In “Closer to Fine,” author Jodi Rosenfeld brings a coming-of-age tale set in Boston, where she lived for many years. The book showcases Rachel Levine, a twenty-something Jewish, bisexual woman finding her adult footing. While not an autobiography, Jodi did look to her time in Boston when creating the world for the book.


Along with the background for the story, we talk about Rachel, the many teachers met and the lessons that each offered. Jodi talks about the editing process and what that this debut writer learned. We also look at She Writes Press, which published the book, and what it was like working with them.
