Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are back. If you were swept away by Graeme Simsion’s international smash hit The Rosie Project, you will love The Rosie Effect
THE ROSIE EFFECT
by Graeme Simsion
Text Publishing, September 2014
‘Graeme Simsion has created perhaps the first thoroughly comic autistic hero…This good-hearted, pacy, thoroughly enjoyable novel takes a significant step towards showing that all human variants are a potential source of life‑affirming comedy.’ – The Guardian on The Rosie Project
One of the quirkiest, most adorable novels I’ve come across…This is a fresh, funny story, written with verve and great timing…I loved The Rosie Project. It’s an entertaining read from start to finish, thoughtful and fun, very different and utterly charming – a brilliant first novel from a mature, clever writer.’ – NZ Herald on Sunday
The Wife Project is complete, and Don and Rosie are happily married and living in New York. But they’re about to face a new challenge.
Rosie is pregnant.
Don sets about learning the protocols of becoming a father, but his unusual research style gets him into trouble with the law. Fortunately his best friend Gene is on hand to offer advice: he’s left Claudia and moved in with Don and Rosie.
As Don tries to schedule time for pregnancy research, getting Gene and Claudia back together, servicing the industrial refrigeration unit that occupies half his apartment, helping Dave the Baseball Fan save his business and staying on the right side of Lydia the social worker, he almost misses the biggest problem of all: he might lose Rosie when she needs him most.
Get ready to fall in love all over again.
