The Rosie Result

Big-hearted, hilarious and exuberantly life-affirming, The Rosie Result is a story of overcoming life's obstacles with a little love and a lot of overthinking.

Meet Don Tillman, the genetics professor with a scientific approach to everything. But he's facing a set of human dilemmas tougher than the trickiest of equations.

Right now he is in professional hot water after a lecture goes viral for all the wrong reasons; his wife of 4,380 days, Rosie, is about to lose the research job she loves; and - the most serious problem of all - their eleven-year-old son, Hudson, is struggling at school. He's a smart kid, but socially awkward and not fitting in.

Fortunately, Don's had a lifetime's experience of not fitting in. And he's going to share the solutions with Hudson.

He'll need the help of old friends and new, lock horns with the education system, and face some big questions about himself. As well as opening the world's best cocktail bar. 

Meet the Author Graeme Simsion

Graeme Simsion is a former IT consultant and the author of two nonfiction books on database design who decided, at the age of fifty, to turn his hand to fiction. His first novel, The Rosie Project, has sold over 3.5 million copies, been translated into over forty languages and won numerous accolades, including the Australian Book Industry Association Book of the Year. It was voted the most popular title for the Richard and Judy Book Club in Spring 2014, and the sequel, The Rosie Effect, was also an international bestseller. Movie rights for the Rosie series have been acquired by Sony Pictures. The final instalment in the series, The Rosie Result, was an instant number one bestseller on its release in Graeme's native Australia.

Graeme was born in New Zealand, his father was British and is now a naturalised Australian – his accent is occasionally spotted. He got his amateur radio licence at 15, in keeping with the type of kid he was at the time. He’s played harmonica with a band, publicly. He walked the Chemin de St Jacques / Camino de Santiago / Way of St James from Tramayes, France to Santiago de Compostela with his wife. The experience was life changing, and they did it again in 2016.

Graeme once gave a conference presentation dressed as a duck. But that’s another story . . .
