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 was the 2014 ABIA Book of the Year and has sold over three million copies worldwide. The sequel, The Rosie Effect, is also a bestseller, with worldwide sales of more than a million copies. Graeme’s screenplay for The Rosie Project is in development with Sony Pictures and The Best of Adam Sharp is in development with Toni Collette’s Vocab Films. Graeme’s latest novel is Two Steps Forward, (Oct, 2017) co-written with his wife, Anne Buist.

‘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
