Synopsis

Don Tillman is getting married. He just doesn’t know who to yet.But he has designed the Wife Project, using a sixteen-page questionnaire to help him find the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent and beautiful. And on a quest of her own to find her biological father—a search that Don, a professor of genetics, might just be able to help her with.The Wife Project teaches Don some unexpected things. Why earlobe length is an inadequate predictor of sexual attraction. Why quick-dry clothes aren’t appropriate attire in New York. Why he’s never been on a second date. And why, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love: love finds you.#42 in Australia's Top 100 Favourite Homegrown Reads ‘Funny and heartwarming, a gem of a book.’ Marian Keyes‘Don Tillman helps us believe in possibility, makes us proud to be human beings, and the bonus is this: he keeps us laughing like hell. I’d love to have a beer with the humane and hilarious Graeme Simsion’. Matthew Quick, New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Lining Playbook‘The Rosie Project is 1930s screwball comedy updated for 2013. Hepburn and Grant in Bringing Up Baby, or Rosalind Russell and Grant in His Girl Friday have the exact same pitch, intelligence, wit and farce with a love story at the centre of it all. Madcap indeed, but like those films The Rosie Project underscored with writing meticulously judged…Extremely loud and incredibly long applause.’ Age/SMH/Canberra Times/Brisbane Times#26 in Australia's Top 100 2016
