Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist
Graeme Simsion is famous for The Rosie Project – a screwball comedy, a best-seller with an unlikely hero – the geeky, gawky, autistic geneticist Don Tillman. Don devises a lengthy questionnaire to use scientific evidence and statistics to track down a wife. (It fails but in the end and against all logic, he succeeds.) The sequel The Rosie Effect came out late last year.
Anne Buist will publish in February the psychological thriller Medea’s Curse – about a forensic psychiatrist who works with victims and perpetrators of violent crime – women with very real personality disorders. Psychiatrist Natalie King rides a Ducati a size too big and wears a tank top a size too small. Likes men but doesn’t want to keep one. And really needs to stay on her medication.
Anne is Chair of Women’s Mental Health at the University of Melbourne. Anne and Graeme are wife and husband.
