My Place

Front Cover
Indialog Publications, 2001 - Aboriginal Australians - 440 pages
My Place traces an aboriginal woman s experiences as a young girl in suburban Perth in the fifties and sixties. Through the use of memories and images of her childhood and adolescence, undiscovered secrets begin to come to light. Gradually, the entire family is pulled into the vortex of these revelations, and people who have always been silent, are allowed to tell their tales. Winner of the 1987 Australian Human Rights Award for Literature and the 1990 Order of Australia Book Prize, My Place is an Australian classic.

My Place is Sally Morgan's first book, and upon publications it immediately achieved best-seller status.
