Time Without Clocks Reviews

    I must say that I really enjoyed this book. It provides an insight into the life of one of Victoria's great women and of those who influenced her. The reader may also note figures through her life who bear a striking resemblance to some of the characters described in her 'Picnic at Hanging Rock'; they were, no doubt, a great inspiration for her and gave foundation to her writing. It also describes the great love she shared for her husband, Daryl, a gifted painter, and why she attributed such significance to St Valentine's Day. She provides some detail of her repulsion to timekeeping, something which was even extended to their sundial--a present from a relative--whose pedestal was already cracked and incapable of securing the dial plate. This suited Joan very well it seemed, and it was never repaired. The cracked pedestal still occupies its place in frozen time, on the grounds of her and Daryl's former home, 'Mulberry Hill', in Langwarrin, which is beautifully maintained by the National Trust of Victoria and open to the public.Despite what some may perceive as her privileged background, she and Daryl remained very well-grounded people who did, in their own way, face difficult periods together, but remained focussed and survived to help establish the National Gallery of Victoria for the public appreciation of art.While lesser known for her painting on canvas, in 'Time Without Clocks' she paints with words a vibrant picture of the world in which she lived in the first half of the twentieth century. It is now a world that has sadly vanished, much like the characters in her wonderful story.

    Lindsay wrote Time Without Clocks before Picnic at Hanging Rock (1967) was even conceived. She was writing about her marriage, their homes and their many famous, accomplished family and friends before she was famous herself. It was a fascinating reflection of life in Melbourne during the twenties and thirties.She started off with her 1922 Valentine Day's marriage to Daryl Lindsay in London and their subsequent return to Australia. Where she met Daryl's family for the first time, including his already famous brothers Norman, Percy and Lionel, on their way to their new home in Melbourne.Lindsay painted a rosy, happy, but poor, 'struggling artist' picture of the early years of their marriage. Money was tight, jobs were scarce and making do was the thing. They mixed in a very social and very creative circle that included Dame Nellie Melba, Arthur Streeton and the McCubbin's. I never felt like Joan was name-dropping or showing off - these were simply the people they knew.Joan claimed to be able to stop clocks which probably accounts for her fascination with the ambiguities of time. She also had a thing for ghosts and Valentine's Day. She was clearly one of life's odd-bods - charming and eccentric - the kind of person that makes all our lives a little better, a little brighter and a little richer thanks to their creative energies.She attracted very loyal, very close, life-long friends (including their Mulberry Hill neighbours Keith & Elizabeth Murdoch). Meanwhile her circumspect, respectful interpretation of her marriage to Daryl Lindsay was admirable, though not very believable. Even before I had read a little wider about her life, I struggled to accept her positive, constantly cheerful version of events.Full review here - http://bronasbooks.blogspot.com.au/20...

    So enjoyed this book. Seeing I have visited The National Trust of Australia (Victoria) property - Mulberry Hill. Her descriptions took me back to my visit. I so want to revisit the property again.

    This memoir focuses on the author's married life in the 1920s and 1930s. She married an artist, Daryl Lindsay. They were very social, entertaining a number of celebrities including Dame Nellie Melba, Keith Murdoch (father of Rupert), Bob Menzies (who became Prime minister in the 1950s). She was related to author Martin Boyd and author / artist Norman Lindsay. They travelled to Europe on a few occasions - the boat trip was 6 to 8 weeks. Daryl became a director of the National Gallery of Victoria from 1942 to 1956. They had no children. During the 1920s and 1930s they lived on a farm (with no electricity). In the book she discusses visits to art galleries. She does not mention undertaking any writing work. The book was published five years before Picnic At Hanging Rock. She was in her 60s when she wrote this book.

    This book was written by Joan Lindsay who is the author of Picnic at Hanging Rock. It's an autobiography and goes into quite a bit of detail about her activities, her marriage, her trips, her friends, her houses and other things. It does indicate that she didn't like clocks, as the title of the book suggests.It does not, though, have anything to do with Picnic at Hanging Rock, and that is something I wish the book had included. I would have liked to have seen some background information on why she wrote the book, where her inspiration came from, how she deals with the controversy (at least among some people) over whether or not the book is based on facts (no evidence has yet been produced to indicate that.)It's somewhat interesting, but I feel it's only for a completist looking for anything even remotely connected to the book/film.

    Oh, to have lived among the artistic world of the Lindsays in the 1920s and 30s. A thoughtful reminiscence, with emphasis on reminding the reader of the importance of appreciating life's minutiae - which can be enhanced by resisting the constant urge to check the time, and watch the clock. No less elegantly written than Picnic at Hanging Rock, a lover of the story of the missing school girls will surely find here insight and delight.

    Such an interesting Lady with fascinating family connections. If you have enjoyed reading Picnic at Hanging Rock then read this to understand more about the author of the Australian classic.

    Not the book I thought it was going to be. Seems to be nicely written though. Perhaps something to read at a later time in life...
