Graeme Simsion’s The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect have delighted readers across the world. His latest book, The Best of Adam Sharp, is set in France and has been described as ‘a dilemma with lots of music’ with ‘complications, transgressions and resolutions’ for its main character. Claire Corbett’s Watch Over Me also combines a relationship drama with the music of the time. They talk about their work with Varuna Chair David White.

Graeme Simsion (Australian)
At the age of fifty, Graeme Simsion enrolled in a course in screenwriting at RMIT. It took him five years to work out that most movies were adaptations of bestselling novels. So he reverse-adapted his screenplay as a novel. The Rosie Project was ABIA book of the year in 2014. He followed with three more international bestsellers: The Rosie Effect, The Best of Adam Sharp and Two Steps Forward (with Anne Buist). His latest book is The Rosie Result.
