Reviews

`A profound memoir by a writer of Aboriginal ancestry meditating upon "white" Australia.'

-- Joyce Carol Oates

`Grant will be an important voice in shaping this nation.'

* The Saturday Paper *

`Grant is a natural storyteller ... at his best when recounting his experiences and observations of Indigenous Australian life with devastating simplicity and acuity. This highly readable book ... has the potential to spark empathy and generate important discussion, and deserves to be read widely.'

* Bookseller + Publisher *
`Searingly honest, this is a compelling and harrowing book in which Stan Grant adds his strong voice to the clamour for social justice and indigenous rights.' * New Internationalist *

`Stan Grant is an extraordinary man. He will be Australia's first aboriginal prime minister.'

-- Peter Carey

`It is a story so essential and salutary to this place that it should be given out free at the ballot box.'
