This volume combines the original texts of Ma and Pa and Model Wife. In Ma and Pa, Rose recalls her childhood growing up in Longueville, New South Wales, over a century ago.

Model Wife continues her story from earliest modelling days to her life with Norman Lindsay. She recounts numerous anecdotes about national and international figures which, apart from their historical interest, are perceptive insights into many well-known indentities.

Published here for the first time are Rose's own quirky pen and ink illustrations to Ma and Pa. Model Wife contains a rich collection of photographs, drawings and paintings, many in colour.

Rose Lindsay: A Model Life includes never before published material by Rose on Elioth Gruner, Percy Grainer, Miles Franklin and H.G. Wells. For the first time, Rose describes in her own words, the fire in America which destroyed so many of Norman Lindsay's fine works.
