Meet the author: Graeme Simsion – The Rosie Project

The Rosie Project by Graeme SimsionOn Monday 3 February we will be welcoming Graeme Simsion to Jaffé & Neale, to celebrate the paperback publication of his novel The Rosie Project, which was critically acclaimed following its launch in 2013.

Professor DonTillman is a Melbourne Professor. Although it is never acknowledged by Don himself, it is clear to his friends – and indeed to the reader – that he is on the Autistic Spectrum, and his literal interpretation of human behaviour is both uncomfortable and brilliantly funny. Don sets out to find a girlfriend, devising ‘The Wife Project’ and putting prospective partners through a detailed screening questionnaire. It is a touching read which examines the way in which we make decisions and form relationships.

A former IT specialist, Graeme Simsion is a screenwriter and novelist, and a father-of-two. He lives in Melbourne, Australia, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming him to Chipping Norton.

Monday 3 February, 6.30pm, at Jaffé & Neale.
