Against the backdrop of Gundanji country, Debra Dank pieces together a deeply personal and profound tribute to family and country in We Come With This Place.

Through a rich and varied mosaic of vivid episodes, Debra shares a complex, powerful story that moves outside of time and place, and confronts the racism that is ever-present in Australia. In an unprecedented sweep, We Come With This Place took home four awards at the 2023 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards, including Book of the Year.

Sit down with Debra to reflect on the creation of this remarkable book.
