Member Rose I. presented on the works of Australian author Graeme Simsion on October 26, 2021. Mr Simsion is a polymath amd successful businessman with degrees in IT and data modelling. Mr. Simsion’s best known work is the trilogy “The Rosy Project” , which uses humour to explore what happens when data modelling is applied to affairs of the heart.
Rose shared this video of Mr. Simsion reading from his work – the video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/BTbnIucT4rU?t=1.
The sharp wit of the book is illustrated in the reading, which Rose said was intensely real and thus difficult to read. To me the reading illustrated that using science to avoid awkward social situations can create awkward social situations.
Rose’s favourite work by Mr. Simsion is the novel “Two Steps Forward”, about what people seek and find as pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago.
