Rezension: [Knisley's] art, as always, has a melancholy whimsy, combining childlike joy with the all-too familiar doubts and fears that are born of burgeoning adulthood. ...An Age of License carries all the weight and emotion of a diary entry, but with the added benefit of charming visuals that only enhance the beauty and apprehension that accompany Lucy throughout her journey. --Marie Anello"

Like the best travelogues, An Age of License shows you what it would be like to visit a place while reminding you that you can never have the same experience. If you liked her last book, Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, you should definitely check this out This book is more thought-provoking than her other works, demonstrating growth and a challenge to readers to think about these things in their own lives. --Johanna Draper Carlson"

Knisley... continues to own the travelogue/graphic novel genre by bringing her characteristic humor and heart to this memoir of a summer in Europe. The title comes from the French l age licence -- the freedom to explore, experiment, and feel joy, all feelings beautifully captured here. [Starred Review] "

The mix of color and crisp black & white in An Age of License makes this the first book of [Knisley's] that truly showcases her abilities as a draftsman and a cartoonist. --Rob Clough"

In her classic travelogue style and interspersed with lovely, contemplative watercolor sketches, [Knisley] offers glimpses of her journey-feeling...as she observes her life from the distance of travel, and her simple lines, lively illustrations, and patchwork of moments she chooses to include artfully capture her introspective mood. Fans of Knisley's earlier works, particularly older teens or young adults, will appreciate this honest, charming, and gently paced travel journal. --Candice Mack"

An Age of License has an immediacy to it that makes it compelling . Knisley composes each page carefully, leading the eye through a series of little moments that add up to a real story. [M]y guess is that she will simply continue to mature as an artist and writer. An Age of License is already evidence of that. --Brigid Alverson"

Lucy Knisley is one of the standout artist-writers of her generation, her storytelling assured and inviting. Her third book, An Age of License, picks up the themes of her first two books with increased sophistication. ... Further work from her pen can only enhance her fine reputation as an artist whose growth and exploits we delight to share. --Paul DiFilippo"

[T]he undertone [of An Age of License] is about learning to embrace periods of change to better understand the person you want to be. ... Knisley s borderless pages and personal insights give the feeling of paging through someone s drawn diary, and her delicate linework is lovely. --Johanna Draper Carlson"

Lucy Knisley's An Age of License is as tender, funny, and keenly observed as French Milk and Relish, but with a new sort of wistfulness and range that I loved. Knisley's work is always fun, but License has a softness, a new shade of emotion that bodes well for the rest of her career. --Juliet Kahn"

Knisley is a good artist and entertaining storyteller, and her rather typical tale rises well above the mundane.--Richard Pachter

The cleverness here is how swiftly Knisley communicates everything... So much delivered so swiftly, so easily, Knisley s chronicles always steering clear of both the sickeningly saccharin sweet and the angst-ridden. It nestles quite naturally in between, as light and as serious, as sad and as funny as real life often is.--Richard Bruton"

Knisley is a pleasurable picture-maker and she engages directly with the issue of privilege as it pertains to her ability to take trips like this one.--Tom Spurgeon"

An Age of License has an immediacy to it that makes it compelling . Knisley composes each page carefully, leading the eye through a series of little moments that add up to a real story. [M]y guess is that she will simply continue to mature as an artist and writer. An Age of License is already evidence of that. --Brigid Alverson"
