The Rosie Result

The Rosie Result

By Simsion, Graeme

I was standing on one leg shucking oysters when the problems began... Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are back in Australia after a decade in New York, and they're about to face their most important challenge. Their son, Hudson, is struggling at school: he's socially awkward and no...t fitting in. Don's spent a lifetime trying to fit in-so who better to teach Hudson the skills he needs? Meanwhile, there are multiple distractions to deal with: the Genetics Lecture Outrage, Rosie's troubles at work, estrangement from his best friend Gene...And opening the world's best cocktail bar. Hilarious and thought-provoking, with a brilliant cast of characters, The Rosie Result is the triumphant final instalment of the much-loved and internationally bestselling Rosie trilogy. 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, as well as the recently published Don Tillman's Standardized Meal System. 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. 'Don Tillman and Rose Jarman are fiction's most unlikely couple but Graeme Simsion's skills with dialogue and tone make them, and their relationship, (just) believable. Hudson, too, is uncomfortably believable. Simsion has mighty intellectual confidence but behind all the steady wit, the rolling jokes, the faux innocence and the cocktail instruction, this is a thoughtful and provocative novel [with] a grand design that will have relevance in the lives of many individual readers...Accomplished novel, mission accomplished.' Helen Elliott, Age '[Don Tillman] has almost transcended the boundaries of fiction to become a geek icon.'Guardian 'One of the most endearing, charming and fascinating literary characters I have met in a long time.'The Times 'This is a busy book with a large cast of characters, new and old. As the last in the series, there are a lot of threads to tidy up; wry humour and set pieces intermingle with serious intent in The Rosie Result...It's a pleasure to inhabit Don's rational mindset again: "We should restrict the discussion to the facts first. Table the evidence, then consider our options. Understand the problem, explore solutions." Indeed. Welcome back, Don.' Australian 'The Rosie trilogy is deserving of the accolades it has garnered and The Rosie Result is the best possible goodbye to the world of Don Tillman.' Mary Dalmau 'The comedy is still there but there's a philosophical seriousness to this one, which brings the whole issue much closer to home. I liked it very much and I recommend it.' The Bookshelf, Radio National 'It is an ambitious task: writing a light and engaging novel while incorporating a serious topic in an inclusive manner. But Simsion pulls it off, maintaining a strong sense of characterisation and narrative, all the while encouraging readers to question their own values.' Conversation Charming, eloquent, and insightful, The Rosie Result is a triumphant conclusion to Don's story, one that celebrates this remarkable father, husband, and friend in all his complexity and brilliance.'
