    • Norman Lindsay - Age of ConsentI liked this a lot! Funny and wise and particularly of interest to artists. Being as it is a novel by a very great artist, about an artist and the process of creativity. It’s about a man struggling to survive on his art in 1930s Australia. In a way, Norman is giving us the key to his own commercial success….but much more than that, he’s showing us how the creative mind works. His artist character is shy, awkward, loner of a guy with his doggie sidekick. He ce [...]


    • Age of Consent, by Norman Lindsay, is a delightfully wonderful novel about a bashful painter and his lovely, ripening model. An Australian artist named Bradly, a sort of nomadic hermit, and his dog Edmund travel from town to town painting new landscapes. At the beginning of the novel and throughout it we find Bradly living on a tight budget, but this becomes a problem when he has an unexpected visitor that comes to stay. While painting landscapes in a new town he encounters a young woman that ha [...]


    • One of my all time favourite books. I've read it many times. I have read it after reading something heavy, as this charming story is light and Norman Lindsay's description of his characters are complimented by his wonderful pen drawing style that reflects perfectly how he has drawn them with words.Lindsay may not have chosen that title in this era. It was originally published in 1938. The book was made into a film in 1969 starring James Mason and Hellen Mirren.


    • A curious case of serendipity brought me to read this bookon the internet I happened upon the trailer for a film from 1969 starring James Mason and Helen Mirren based on this book which I found is out of print.However, I dropped into my local charity shop and there; (as Bradly Mudgett would say) "Damme"ere was a lovely clean copy of the 1991 A&R paperback edition. And just for $1 !!First published in 1938 but banned in Australia until 1962 this is a charming tale of a curmudgeonly artist fin [...]


    • I found this novel a roundabout way. I saw a painting by Norman Lindsay on the web and liked it enough to look up its creator on . I found out that Lindsay was not only a successful painter, etcher, and sculptor, but also a novelist with multiple publications. It's a rare combination of talents, and I wanted to know more about the man. said that Age of Consent is semi-autobiographical and also that it was banned in Lindsay's native Australia until 1962, so I decided to read it. I had to order it [...]



    • Entertaining, with lovely illustrations and well written story of an artist and his muse has qualities of the fairy tale. First published in 1938.
