  • A teller of place and places

    What Stan Grant is particularly good at is living and writing in the midst of complexity. His work is a balm for those of us negotiating the same territory while not wanting to forget the difficulties in ending up in a place anything like grace. Like his family before him he was born to tell stories and this one is among the most fundamental to understanding what we think of as Australia.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Thank you Stan

    How lucky we are that Stan has the skills to craft this story. Thoroughly warmed to his narrative and assessments. Still so much to be done, isn't it embarrassing and depressing. Who will lead us to a better place?

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Talking to my Country

    A well written, insightful book, very moving & stirring in its prose. One criticism is that it is quite repetitive in parts---- many phrases repeated, which seemed a bit overdone & perhaps a little tedious.

  • My thoughts are

    Firstly. I'm grateful to Mr Grant for his telling of the events of the last 200years relating to the settler's to current residents horrific treatment of aboriginals. And still happening. Secondly. Apart from just me personally, I don't know what to do to change it in the future. Perhaps our education

  • Great read

    A really heartfelt synopsis of one mans torn allegiance for his country. Beautifully written, it really takes you there and helps you understand the grey area between black and white Australia.
