My Place by Sally Morgan
‘Can’t you just leave the past buried, it won’t hurt anyone then?’

‘Mum, it’s already hurt people. It’s hurt you and me and Nan, all of us...’

In 19882, Sally Morgan travelled back to her grandmother’s birthplace. What started as a tentative search for information about her family, turned into an overwhelming notional and spiritual pilgrimage. Sally Morgan and her family were confronted with their own suppressed history, and with fundamental questions about her identity.

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 thee tongues of the author’s mother and grandmother, allowing them to tell their own stories.

My Place is a powerful autobiography of three enervation, by a writer with the gift for language of a born story-teller. Sally Morgan has produced a beautifully crafted book; at once a work of great humour, humanity, poignancy and courage.
