My Place begins with Sally Morgan tracing the experiences of her 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 - a mystery of identity, complete with clues and suggested solutions.

Sally Morgan's My Place 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.

  • Poor example of Australian literature

    by on

    I did a good enough job of pretending to be interested when my boyfriend's father spoke about this book that he went straight out and bought me a copy... So now I'm compelled to read it in case there is a pop quiz over Christmas lunch.



    Sally Morgan's writing is an absolute trial, and I refuse to believe that ANYONE could remember their early childhood in such technicolour detail and every sentence she "speaks" as a 5 year old sounds like the words of a 50 year old.



    I'm a first generation Australian who has been dragged through the whole "National Sorry Day" rubbish (my ancestors had nothing to do with any negative treatment of Aborigines, so why should I apologise for anything?) and this book hasn't encouraged me to take any interest in the plight of the Stolen Generation. I don't think it does the Aboriginal community any favours and despite Sally Morgan's insistence that she did not obtain an Indigenous grant for university for the money, I think the additional allowance and the guaranteed place at uni, combined with the repatriation grant she was already receiving would have been a major factor.



    I doubt many people would have ever made it to the end of this book had it not been on the Curriculum Council's list of English Lit. texts - perhaps to satisfy some minority component. I'm not even going to recycle this tripe once I've done my duty in reading it - it'll go straight in the bin.
