  • 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 not 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.

    Praise for Graeme Simsion
    andThe Rosie Result

    ‘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.’

    ‘I recommend Graeme Simsion’s The Rosie Result. (And if you haven’t read the first two books in the Rosie trilogy, summer vacation is the perfect time to start!)’

    ‘Fiction as good as it gets…Laugh-out-loud funny.’
