Happy Bookers Discussion Group
Next meeting: Wednesday,
The Rosie Project
by Graeme Simsion
Read-out-loud laughter begins by page two in Simsion’s debut novel about a 39-year-old genetics professor with Asperger’s—but utterly unaware of it—looking to solve his Wife Problem. Don Tillman cannot find love; episodes like the Apricot Ice Cream Disaster prevent so much as a second date with a woman. His devised solution is the Wife Project: dating only those who “match” his idiosyncratic standards as determined by an exacting questionnaire. His plans take a backseat when he meets Rosie, a bartender who wants him to help her determine her birth father’s identity.
Multiple copies of the book are on order. To get on the waiting list, place a request online.
Asperger’s conditions help him or hinder him? Does Don’s having autism offer
any advantages in his life?
