Description The chapter analyzes Sally Morgan's iconic text, her autobiography My Place (1987) as a narrative of many complexities, among them the multilayered structure, diverse narrative perspectives, integrating other autobiographical accounts transcribed from oral storytelling into the main narrative, use of fictionalized dialogues, etc. Ultimately, the chapter argues that although My Place has, throughout its reception history, attracted various critical responses, it is a narrative which marked an important historical and socio-cultural milieu and remains to be a significant contribution of Aboriginal literature to Australian literary canon.
