AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Don Tillman is a forty-year-old geneticist with undiagnosed Aspergers. When he wants to find a partner, he approaches the project the only way he knows - systematically. He creates a questionnaire designed to find the perfect woman - a punctual, non-drinking, non-smoking female who will fit in with his regimented lifestyle. When Rosie appears on the scene, she fits none of Don's criteria - but she does turn his life upside down.'

The Rosie Project : Discussions with Graeme Simsion on Reverse Adaptation Annabelle Murphy , 2016 single work criticism
— Appears in: Journal of Screenwriting , March vol. 7 no. 1 2016; (p. 83-98)
'Graeme Simsion’s internationally best-selling novel, The Rosie Project (2013a), began life as a romantic comedy script that nobody wanted. One year later, having ‘reverse adapted’ his screenplay into a novel, The Rosie Project (2013a) was on the New York Times best-selling list and swiftly sold to 40 territories around the world. This article, based on my discussions with screenwriter and author Graeme Simsion, and informed by my own practice-led research into ‘reverse adaptation’, will examine this little discussed manifestation of screen adaptation. What are the creative challenges facing the screenwriter in taking on the ‘opposite’ of a traditional adaptation? How do professional and industrial conditions differ for the screenwriter undertaking a reverse adaptation? Why even begin a reverse adaptation? This article also briefly contextualizes reverse adaptation as belonging to the greater contemporary ‘ecology’ of transmedia adaption, and places it in relation to the commercial novelization.'

'What if a database modelling consultant wanted to become a screenwriter, and to help his script get made into a film he turned it into a novel?'

'It was just before Christmas 2012 that I sat with Graeme Simsion in his Fitzroy home discussing the release the following month of his first novel, The Rosie Project. ...'
