Closer to Fine is her first novel. She lives with her husband and two teenage children in Phoenixville, PA.


"A warmhearted exploration of modern love with considerable psychological and philosophical insights."

--Kirkus Reviews

"This book radiates goodness. It's warm and smart, funny and brave. It
has deep, particular knowledge of people, while at the same time
embracing the great, wistful messiness of being human. And it's a sheer
pleasure to read: a beautifully paced, searching journey full of
surprises and wisdom."

--Leah Hager Cohen, author of Strangers and Cousins

"Closer to Fine is a tender coming-of-age novel that will
resonate for anyone who has ever struggled to find their place in the
world. Rosenfeld tells an absorbing story full of keen emotional
insights into coming out, finding love, and staying true to one's self
in a time of growth and change."

--Idit Klein, president and CEO of Keshet--for LGBTQ Equality in Jewish Life

"Jodi Rosenfeld masterfully intertwines explorations of identity,
relationship, and wisdom to create a compelling portrait of a young
woman seeking a life of integrity and love. This is a moving and
engaging novel."

--Rabbi Deborah Waxman, PhD, president of Reconstructing Judaism

"Closer to Fine is full of heart and humanity and the tensions
that pull on all of us. It is a story that is both satisfying in depth
and tension and an easy weekend novel to curl up with. Rachel stayed
alive for me long after I finished reading about her."

--Sharon Chatkupt Lee, PsyD, clinical psychologist.
