Don Tillman is getting married. He just doesn't know who to yet.

But he has designed the Wife Project, using a sixteen-page questionnaire to help him find the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.

Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent and beautiful. And on a quest of her own to find her biological father—a search that Don, a professor of genetics, might just be able to help her with.

The Wife Project teaches Don some unexpected things. Why earlobe length is an inadequate predictor of sexual attraction. Why quick-dry clothes aren't appropriate attire in New York. Why he's never been on a second date. And why, despite your best scientific efforts, you don't find love: love finds you.

This is the perfect example of fine Aussie storytelling. It is packed with quirky, realistic characters and is told with poignancy and humour. Recommended reading.

Don Tillman, is a handsome, thirty-nine-year-old university genetics lecturer and is on the autistic spectrum. Don has only two friends and lacks the ability to read people’s emotions, meaning that he is often awkward in social situations. He is single and never had a second date. To correct this fault in his life he devises a scientific test to find the perfect partner which he refers to as the 'Wife Project'. He creates a questionnaire which he distributes at dating meets and sites to await for the right match to reply. Simple! Enter Rosie -" the world's most incompatible woman" - a psychology graduate, vegetarian smoker and bartender, who captures Don's attention and throws his safe, ordered life into chaos. Just what is this alien emotion that he's feeling?
