Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are about to face their most important challenge.
Their eleven-year-old 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 and Rosie to decide how much to guide Hudson, and raise some significant questions about Don’s own identity.
Meanwhile, there is the Genetics Lecture Outrage, Rosie’s troubles at work, Don’s 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 installment of the internationally bestselling Don Tillman trilogy.

“Simsion returns to comic form seamlessly, pitting Don against his greatest challenge: parenting. Hudson is Don in miniature with a double helping of Rosie's sass, and whether the two are butting heads or joining forces, hilarity ensues…A meditation on parenting in our times, an indictment of discrimination and a fond farewell to a one-of-a-kind character,The Rosie Result will make readers fall in love with the series all over again.”—Shelf Awareness

"This is fiction as good as it gets, truly taking you into another world—and laugh-out-loud funny as well."—Nicholas Kristof,New York Times newsletter

“Entertaining and thought-provoking,The Rosie Result is the emotionally raw conclusion to an endearing series, and it will surely leave readers satisfied.”—BookTrib.com

“Simsion is, as ever, funny without unfairly poking fun, and deeply empathetic toward the flaws and weirdness that everyone carries inside. Charming, eloquent, and insightful,The Rosie Result is a triumphant conclusion to Don’s story, one that celebrates this remarkable father, husband, and friend in all his complexity and brilliance.”—Booklist [starred]

"Don’s voice is particular—his intelligence extraordinary—and he is oblivious of how funny he is. His relationships with others are unique and excellently written…AlthoughThe Rosie Result centers on Hudson and Don, each character in it transforms in their own way… Simsion’s novel depicts autism in such unremarkable ways that its story becomes remarkable in the telling."—Foreword Reviews

“[V]ery much a charmer... with everything coming to a proper close. A fitting end to this delightful trilogy that doesn't pull punches.”—Kirkus

“Simsion hits just the right balance between serious literary exploration of social issues and the delightfully humorous (mis)adventures of an unusual but good-intentioned modern family."—New York Journal of Books

"‘A whimsical tale of devoted, if rather unorthodox, parenting… Fans will find this sensitive and sometimes humorous look at Don’s relationship with his son to be the ideal ending to the trilogy."—Publishers Weekly

“It’s not hard to see why the Rosie novels have been welcomed by the autism community…Simsion’s message of inclusiveness and embracing differences is lovely….In the end, The Rosie Result is about learning to be comfortable with who you are.”—NPR.org

“What is normal, and who among us gets to decide what is? Or is it enough to simply be comfortable in one’s own skin? These are the heavy questions at the crux of this lighthearted book about identity….a fitting conclusion to a trilogy that explores the human condition in a uniquely nuanced way.”—San Francisco Chronicle
