Product Description
 
Time Without Clocks is Joan Lindsay's charming and evocative autobiography. It tells the story of her marriage to Sir Daryl Lindsay, of their life in Melbourne in the twenties and thirties, of their travels in Europe, and above all the gentle world of 'Mulberry Hill', a house without clocks.

Revealed in this delightful reminiscence is Joan Lindsay's fascination with the ambiguities of time, seen by some as the key to the mysteries of Picnic at Hanging Rock.Time Without Clocks is Joan Lindsay's charming and evocative autobiography.

Joan Lindsay was born in Melbourne in 1896. Originally trained as a visual artist, she turned to writing after her marriage to Sir Daryl Lindsay in 1922. Her first novel, Through Darkest Pondelayo (1936), was a parody of popular travel books. Her second, Time Without Clocks, wasn't published until nearly thirty years later; her most famous, Picnic at Hanging Rock, was released in 1967 and made into a film in 1975. She died in 1984.
