If not for money, then maybe for love.
Three years ago, Emily was a struggling literary author when she met Scott, a struggling screenwriter. Combining her elegant writing with his gripping story, the pair crafted a novel that became an international bestseller—and fell in love along the way.
Now her latest manuscript is stuck, his solo novel has flopped and their relationship is on the rocks. The situation is made even messier when an aspiring writer with her own agenda gets involved. Can Emily and Scott work it out and create another hit?
Creative Differences is a wry and incisive study of love, writing and creativity from internationally bestselling author Graeme Simsion. It’s accompanied by a selection of stories from across his career, including the first appearance of Don Tillman from the Rosie novels.
‘These short, sharp stories reveal the best of Simsion: curious, interested in the world and with a whimsical ability to report his findings…Entertaining and instructive.’
‘A droll and insightful study of partnerships—in love, in writing, in work—and creativity.’
‘Simsion is a master raconteur.’
‘A varied selection, held together by the author’s unique voice and his ability to make something special from the slimmest of experiences. The author’s introduction is not to be missed either.’
‘A memorable, convincing, affecting tale of midlife panic.’
‘…a direct O. Henry descendant, shocking and satisfying.’
‘High on my list of the best short stories I have ever read.’
‘You must read it, especially if you know M.F.K Fisher…the nuanced despair and delight of travel is gauged with aplomb.’
