Join author of the international bestseller The Rosie Project Graeme Simsion at Castle Hill Library to discuss his third novel, The Best of Adam Sharp. In Adam Sharp, Simsion uses his signature light touch to explore the nature of love, the challenges of long-term relationships, and how we deal with the past. Music is our protagonist Adam's emotional wingman, and Simsion litters the story with references to many brilliant songs from the 1960s and 70s. The book includes a playlist for readers to listen to as they go.
Graeme Simsion was born in Auckland and is a Melbourne-based writer of novels, short stories, plays, screenplays and two non-fiction books.
The Rosie Project began life as a screenplay, winning the Australian Writers Guild/Inscription Award for Best Romantic Comedy before being adapted into a novel. It went on to win the 2012 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript and has since been sold around the world to over forty countries.
Sony Pictures have optioned the film rights with Graeme contracted to write the script. The Rosie Project won the 2014 ABIA for Best General Fiction Book, and was ultimately awarded Australian Book of the Year for 2014. The sequel, The Rosie Effect, was released in 2014 to great acclaim and also became a bestseller.
