About the Book

‘Sad and wise and funny … unbelievably and unexpectedly moving, Sally Morgan’s love for her own spiritual and racial roots and her struggle to uncover them reveals a new Australia (the old) and a new way to embrace the elders and the young of all our peoples, wherever (and whoever) they might be. A book with heart’ — Alice Walker, author of The Colour Purple.

In 1982, Sally Morgan travelled back to her grandmother’s birthplace. What started as a tentative search for information about her family, turned into an overwhelming emotional and spiritual pilgrimage. My Place is a moving account of a search for truth into which a whole family is gradually drawn, finally freeing the tongues of the author’s mother and grandmother, allowing them to tell their own stories.
