This is an excellent low key or understated portrayal of the injustices white people have imposed on the original occupants of Australia and the attempts made by aboriginal people to reclaim their sense of identity and belonging.  Using the actual voices of the participants, Sally Morgan’s autobiographical novel like her painting, is a rich tapestry told in an ironic matter of fact manner that gives each of the characters a worthy dignity that no one can take away.
