Talking to My Country


A national bestseller, Talking to My Country is that rare and special book that talks to every Australian about their country - what it is, and what it could be. It is not just about race or about indigenous people but all of us, our shared identity. Direct, honest and forthright, Stan is talking to us all. He might not have all the answers but he wants us to keep on asking the question: how can we be better?

One of Australia's leading journalists, Stan Grant, spent many years outside Australia, working in Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Africa. Offering a unique perspective on the racial and political landscape of Australia, Talking to My Country is Stan's very personal meditation on what it means to be Australian, what it means to be indigenous today, and what racism really means in this country.

Winner of the 2016 Walkley Book Award and the 2016 National Trust Heritage Award, and shortlisted for the 2016 NIB Waverley Library Award and the 2016 Queensland Literary Award.
