The Rosie Project was an international publishing phenomenon, with more than a million copies sold in over forty countries around the world. Now Graeme Simsion returns with the highly anticipated sequel, The Rosie Effect. Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are now married and living in New York. Don has been teaching while Rosie completes her second year at Columbia Medical School. Just as Don is about to announce that Gene, his philandering best friend from Australia, is coming to stay, Rosie drops a bombshell: she's pregnant. In true Tillman style, Don instantly becomes an expert on all things obstetric. But in between immersing himself in a new research study on parenting and implementing the Standardised Meal System (pregnancy version), Don's old weaknesses resurface. And while he strives to get the technicalities right, he gets the emotions all wrong, and risks losing Rosie when she needs him most. The Rosie Effect is the charming and hilarious romantic-comedy of the year. Graeme Simsion is a Melbourne-based novelist and screenwriter. The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect have combined global sales approaching five million copies. Graeme is also the author of the international bestsellers The Best of Adam Sharp and – co-written with his wife, Anne Buist – Two Steps Forward. His screenplay for The Rosie Project is in development with Sony Pictures, The Best of Adam Sharp is in development with Toni Collette’s Vocab Films, and the rights to Two Steps Forward have been optioned by Fox Searchlight and Ellen DeGeneres. Graeme’s latest book is the third and final Rosie novel, The Rosie Result. ‘There’s no sophomore [second-novel] slump here...It’s a funny novel that also made me think about relationships: what makes them work and how we have to keep investing time and energy to make them better. A sweet, entertaining, and thought-provoking book.’ Bill Gates ‘The Rosie Effect is a successful sequel; it will be enjoyed by readers who found The Rosie Project entertaining, and to new readers searching for a satisfying comedy, with a memorable main character and plenty of heart.’ Weekend Australian ‘Don himself, pedantically single-focused as ever, is increasingly charismatic and the left-field resolution of his problems is as satisfyingly credible as it is delightfully unexpected.’ Adelaide Advertiser ‘Unlike most sequels, this second book is very close to being as good as the first...The writing is witty and the characters charming, making it easy to just sit back and enjoy the ride. Here’s hoping for book number three.’ Dominion Post Weekend/Waikato Times/Weekend Press ‘This charming new chapter in the Tillman chronicles leaves you hoping it won’t be the last.’ People ‘[A] winning sequel...The Rosie Effect is a celebration of the best attributes to be found in a friend, a husband, or a father, regardless of the way they are expressed.' STARRED Review, Booklist ‘A wholly absorbing, vivid read that leaves you pining to be reunited with its characters every time you put it down—if you’re able to.’ Independent ‘[A] romantic comedy that’s just as smart, funny and heartwarming as the original.’ Washington Post ‘That these books are as funny and charming and often touching as they are is a tribute to the skill with which they’re written.’ NPR

Winner of the Australian Book Industry Award for Best Book 2014. Don Tillman is getting married. He just doesn’t know who to yet. But he has designed the Wife Project, using a sixteen-page questionnaire to help him 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 also fiery and intelligent and beautiful. And on a quest of her own to find her biological father—a search that Don, a professor of genetics, might just be able to help her with. The Wife Project teaches Don some unexpected things. Why earlobe length is an inadequate predictor of sexual attraction. Why quick-dry clothes aren’t appropriate attire in New York. Why he’s never been on a second date. And why, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love: love finds you. The Rosie Project is a classic screwball romance. Graeme Simsion is a Melbourne-based novelist and screenwriter. The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect have combined global sales approaching five million copies. Graeme is also the author of the international bestsellers The Best of Adam Sharp and – co-written with his wife, Anne Buist – Two Steps Forward. His screenplay for The Rosie Project is in development with Sony Pictures, The Best of Adam Sharp is in development with Toni Collette’s Vocab Films, and the rights to Two Steps Forward have been optioned by Fox Searchlight and Ellen DeGeneres. Graeme’s latest book is the third and final Rosie novel, The Rosie Result. ‘It’s an extraordinarily clever, funny, and moving book about being comfortable with who you are and what you’re good at. I’m sending copies to several friends and hope to re-read it later this year. This is one of the most profound novels I’ve read in a long time.’ Bill Gates ‘Funny and heartwarming, a gem of a book.’ Marian Keyes ‘The Rosie Project is 1930s screwball comedy updated for 2013. Hepburn and Grant in Bringing Up Baby, or Rosalind Russell and Grant in His Girl Friday have the exact same pitch, intelligence, wit and farce with a love story at the centre of it all.’ Age/SMH/Canberra Times/Brisbane Times ‘Don Tillman helps us believe in possibility, makes us proud to be human beings, and the bonus is this: he keeps us laughing like hell. I'd love to have a beer with the humane and hilarious Graeme Simsion.’ Matthew Quick, New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook ‘One of the quirkiest, most adorable novels I’ve come across...Don Tillman is such a fantastic, lovable, geeky character that you’re cheering for him from page one...Thoughtful and fun, very different and utterly charming.’ NZ Herald on Sunday ‘An endearing, funny book, a quirky love story, and a must read for 2013.’ Daily Telegraph ‘As you start reading this extraordinary work, there’s no doubt that unlikely hero Don Tillman is about to take the world if not by storm, then certainly by rational argument...Laugh-out loud funny, poignant and so ingenious and compelling you feel as if you want to jump into the world of the novel and join in.’ Australian Women's Weekly ‘It’s so good...Don’s voice was funny and real and really entertaining.’ She Latitude

‘A delightful tale of renewal and shedding unnecessary burdens...This is sure to be loved by fans of The Rosie Project and it’s enough to put the Camino at the top of your travel wishlist.’ Herald Sun Zoe, a sometime artist, is from California. Martin, an engineer, is from Yorkshire. Both have ended up in picturesque Cluny, in central France. Both are struggling to come to terms with their recent past—for Zoe, the death of her husband; for Martin, a messy divorce. Looking to make a new start, each sets out alone to walk two thousand kilometres from Cluny to Santiago, in northwestern Spain, in the footsteps of pilgrims who have walked the Camino—the Way—for centuries. The Camino changes you, it’s said. It’s a chance to find a new version of yourself. But can these two very different people find each other? In this smart, funny and romantic journey, Martin’s and Zoe’s stories are told in alternating chapters by husband-and-wife team Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist. Two Steps Forward is a novel about renewal—physical, psychological and spiritual. It’s about the challenge of walking a long distance and of working out where you are going. And it’s about what you decide to keep, what you choose to leave behind and what you rediscover. Fate took the form of a silver scallop shell in the window of an antique store in the medieval French town of Cluny. It was laying on its back as if waiting for Boticelli's Venus, luring her with a cluster of coloured stones at one end of a white enamel edge. I was compulsively drawn to it. Maybe the universe was sending me a message; more likely it was my head being in another time zone. I had been travelling for twenty-four hours since I walked out of my home in Los Angeles for the last time. Two Steps Forward by Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist has been optioned by Fox Searchlight with Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman producing it through A Very Good Production. Graeme Simsion is the internationally bestselling author of The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect and The Best of Adam Sharp. Anne Buist is chair of Women's Mental Health at the University of Melbourne and author of the Natalie King psychological thrillers. They live together in Melbourne. ‘ The novel explores themes of forgiveness and self-discovery with gentle humour...A feel-good, mature romance that explores what we need to let go of to move forward.’ Books+Publishing ‘I enjoyed every moment of this informative, funny and sweet novel.’ Readings ‘A novel of mature love and self-discovery set against the scenic backdrop of the pilgrims’ walk’ Age ‘There’s so much to love about this novel, which is smart and funny and full of the awkwardness and adrenaline of adventure and new romance.’ Whimn ‘Fans of The Rosie Project might recognise shades of Don Tillman...Compelling reading...[A] cast of entertaining and eccentric characters...The book’s momentum never flags...[An] entertaining and refreshingly unpredictable romance.’ Sydney Morning Herald ‘Sometimes, you just have to feel—to go with what the Way or a book like this one makes you feel. This one made me feel uplifted. I hope it does the same for you too.’ Pop.edit.lit ‘Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist keep it in the family with their cowritten novel Two Steps Forward (Text, October), a romantic comedy told in alternating chapters from the point of view of two wounded souls trekking the Spanish pilgrimage route, the Camino de Santiago.’ Books+Publishing ‘Simsion and Buist are Camino veterans who add detail and authority to their novel.’ Adelaide Advertiser ‘This is the sort of book that you can easily imagine being filmed, with strong set pieces, gorgeous scenery, and lots of heart and humour.’ Booktopian ‘Simsion and Australian psychiatrist Buist have written an insightful study of loss, grief, and the possibility of romance after.’ Library Journal ‘A beautifully crafted tale of love, self-acceptance and blisters’ Sunday Express ‘charming, uplifting’ The People ‘charming and absorbing’ Daily Mail ‘charming’ Good Housekeeping ‘an authentic and diverting read that will make you want to put on your walking boots and book a one-way ticket to southern France.’ Press Association

A REESE WITHERSPOON x HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK 'I found myself laughing out loud at Susan's prickly character' Reese Witherspoon THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER | SHORTLISTED FOR THE BEST FIRST NOVEL AWARD | A RICHARD AND JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK People aren't sure what to make of Susan Green. Family and colleagues find her prickly and hard to understand - but Susan makes perfect sense to herself. Age 45, she thinks her life is perfect. She has a London flat which is ideal for one; a steady job that suits her passion for logic; and a personal arrangement providing cultural and other, more intimate, benefits. Yet suddenly faced with the loss of her mother and, implausibly, with the possibility of becoming a mother herself, Susan's greatest fear is being realised: she is losing control. And things can only get worse ... at least in Susan's eyes. This sparkling debut is a breath of fresh air with real heart and a powerful emotional punch. In Susan we find a character as exasperating and delightful as The Rosie Project's Don Tillman. An uncompromising feminist and a fierce fighter, it's a joy to watch her bloom. 'Quirky, poignant and extremely readable' Sunday Mirror 'Brilliantly comic' The Lady 'Wonderfully funny and astute' Red 'Funny, compelling, well-written...for fans of Marian Keyes who demand a bit of grit in their comic writing' Emerald Street
