Graeme Simsion reads from his latest novel "The Best of Adam Sharp"


The author of The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect returns with a moving new novel.

Two decades ago, Adam Sharp's piano playing led him into a passionate relationship with Angelina Brown, an intelligent and strong-willed actress. They had a chance at something more--but Adam didn't take it. Now, on the cusp of turning fifty, Adam likes his life. He's happy with his partner Claire, he excels in music trivia at quiz night at the local pub, he looks after his mother, and he does the occasional consulting job in IT. But he can never quite shake off his nostalgia for what might have been. And then, out of nowhere, from the other side of the world, Angelina gets in touch. What does she want? Does Adam dare to live dangerously?

Set to the soundtrack of our lives, The Best of Adam Sharp follows along with emotion and humor as one man looks back on his past and decides if having a second chance is worth the risk.


Graeme Simsion is a former IT consultant and the author of two nonfiction books on database design who decided, at the age of fifty, to turn his hand to fiction. His novels, The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect, are worldwide bestsellers, translated into over thirty-five languages. Graeme lives in Australia with his wife, Anne, and their two children.
