To celebrate Australian sales of over half a million copies, and international sales in eleven countries, comes the special, hard case gift edition of Sally Morgan’s remarkable My Place.
In 1982 Sally Morgan travelled back to her grandmother’s birthplace. What started out as a tentative search for information about her family, turned into an overwhelming emotional and spiritual pilgrimage.
My Place begins with the experiences of Sally’s own life, growing up in suburban Perth in the fifties and sixties. Through the memories and images of her childhood and adolescence, vague hints and echoes begin to emerge, hidden knowledge is uncovered, and a fascinating story unfolds. It is a deeply 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.
My Place is an Australian classic.
