Description of this Book

The Rosie Effect is the charming and hilarious sequel to Graeme Simsion's bestselling debut novel The Rosie Project. Forty-one-year-old geneticist Don Tillman had never had a second date before he met Rosie. Now, living in New York City, they have survived ten months and ten days of marriage, even if Don has had to sacrifice standardized meals and embrace unscheduled sex. But then Rosie drops the mother of all bombshells. And Don must prepare for the biggest challenge of his previously ordered life - at the same time as dodging deportation, prosecution and professional disgrace. Is Don Tillman ready to become the man he always dreamed of being? Or will he revert to his old ways and risk losing Rosie for ever? Join Don and Rosie in the next chapter of their weird and wonderful journey in Graeme Simsion's unmissable new novel, The Rosie Effect. Praise for The Rosie Effect: 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). Don Tillman is the protagonist who keeps on giving. He is a gem, an empirical laser trained on human shortcomings, especially male ones, and even more especially his own. He is also utterly charming in his lack of guile and his belief in improvability...blissfully comic. (Evening Standard). Simsion is very smart at negotiating the line between a satire of the whole modern baby-rearing neurosis and drawing intriguing characters ...this book is an intelligent piece of fun. (The Times). Graeme Simsion is a full-time writer. His first novel, The Rosie Project, was originally written as a screenplay and won the Australian Writers' Guild/Inscription Award for Best Romantic Comedy Script in 2010. As a novel, it won the Australian Book Industry Association Book of the Year for 2014. Rights have been sold in forty-two countries and The Rosie Project is now a bestselling novel worldwide. In the UK, it was selected for the Richard and Judy Book Club and was voted the most popular title for the Spring 2014 campaign. Graeme lives in Australia with his wife Anne, a professor of psychiatry and published author, and their two children. The Rosie Effect is his second novel.
