When Sally Morgan's My Place was first published in 1987 it was described as "the sort of Australian history which hasn't been written before, and which we desperately need"; as a "triumphant story" and "profoundly moving". The story of her family's recovery of Aboriginal identity has struck a powerful chord with all Australians. The book has sold thousands of copies in many editions. Whose Place? is the first book to examine why Sally Morgan's story matters so much. Its essays discuss the many ways My Place can be read: as autobiography; as history, oral history and counter-history; as a political intervention in the 'story' of white Australia; as a detective story that discovers an Aboriginal identity for its writer.
