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?
The Hudson Project will require the help of friends old and new, force Don to decide how much to guide Hudson and how much to let him be himself, and raise some significant questions about his own identity.
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.
‘Don Tillman helps us believe in possibility, makes us proud to be human beings, and…keeps us laughing like hell.'—Matthew Quick, New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Lining Playbook
‘Extraordinarily clever, funny, and moving.'—Bill Gates
‘Don Tillman…is a gem, an empirical laser trained on human shortcomings, especially male ones, and even more especially his own. He is also utterly charming in his lack of guile and his belief in improvability. Through him, Simsion…deals with issues of nature, nurture, gender, free will and the vagaries of the human heart with a deceptively light touch.'—Evening Standard
‘A heartwarming story of an extraordinary man learning to live in an ordinary world.’—USA Today
‘[Don] Tillman has almost transcended the boundaries of fiction to become a geek icon.'—Guardian
‘There is much to love in this comedy of errors.'—Daily Express
‘Don himself, pedantically single-focused as ever, is increasingly charismatic and the left-field resolution of his problems is as satisfyingly credible as it is delightfully unexpected.'—Adelaide Advertiser
'The Rosie Effect is a celebration of the best attributes to be found in a friend, a husband, or a father, regardless of the way they are expressed.'—Booklist (starred review)
