The feel-good hit of 2013, The Rosie Project is a classic screwball romance. Simsion's book has been sold to 30 different countries and advances have well exceeded $1 million.

Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. Then a chance encounter gives him an idea. He will design a questionnaire—a sixteen-page, scientifically researched document—to find the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker or a late-arriver.

Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is strangely beguiling, fiery and intelligent. And she is also on a quest of her own. She’s looking for her biological father, a search that a certain DNA expert might just be able to help her with—even if he does wear quick-dry clothes and eat lobster every single Tuesday night.

About the Author

Graeme Simsion was born in 1956. He is an IT consultant and data analyst with an international reputation. He has taught at four Australian universities and is currently a Senior Research Fellow at Melbourne University. He is a founder of Pinot Now, a wine importer and distributor, and is married to Anne, a professor of psychiatry who writes erotic fiction. They have two children.

In 2007, Graeme completed his PhD in information systems and enrolled in the professional screenwriting course at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. He has made a number of short films and his screenplay, The Rosie Project, won the Australian Writers Guild / Inception Award for Best Romantic Comedy Script in 2010. While waiting for The Rosie Project to be produced, he turned it into a novel which in June 2012 won the Victorian Premier’s award for an unpublished fiction manuscript.

Readers of The Rosie Project will know that Graeme Simsion has a first-class sense of humour. At professional conferences he has given addresses from on top of a ladder, dressed as a duck, and he once engaged a group of spellbound chartered accountants in community singing.

    Comments about The Rosie Project:

    A terrific insight into a mind that borders on Asperger's syndrome. Refreshing to read from the insider view rather than looking at the character from outside.

    Comments about The Rosie Project:

    The Book was extremely delightful to read. It follows the story of Don, a man who borderlines on autisic, quest to find a 'Life Partner'. He uses an extremely scientific questionnaire to look for suitable candidates.

    It's surprising, engaging and very cute in parts. Some fantastic scenes that would be great to see in film version! I wish it was a movie!

            Read it fr enjoyment as an academic and retired psychotherapist, belly laughs at the in jokes were very healing, but would hve been disturbing in company and would have resulted in being removed from a library.
