In Pieces

In Pieces

by Sally Field

Overview: One of the most celebrated, beloved, and enduring actors of our time, Sally Field has an infectious charm that has captivated the nation for more than five decades, beginning with her first TV role at the age of seventeen. From Gidget's sweet-faced "girl next door" to the dazzling complexity of Sybil to the Academy Award-worthy ferocity and depth of Norma Rae and Mary Todd Lincoln, Field has stunned audiences time and time again with her artistic range and emotional acuity. Yet there is one character who always remained hidden: the shy and anxious little girl within.

With raw honesty and the fresh, pitch-perfect prose of a natural-born writer, and with all the humility and authenticity her fans have come to expect, Field brings readers behind-the-scenes for not only the highs and lows of her star-studded early career in Hollywood, but deep into the truth of her lifelong relationships--including her complicated love for her own mother. Powerful and unforgettable, In Pieces is an inspiring and important account of life as a woman in the second half of the twentieth century.

Faith Bowers (04/12/19): At 71 Sally writes her memoir. She writes about her motherís family and then her own early childhood, and then when her mother remarries. The trauma she has doesnít really get worked through until she is in her 60s, so good relationships with men are more as mentors and friends.

You wonder why she keeps on writing about her mother but the story ends by answering the questions you have along the way. Though Ms Field is an excellent actress, always working, this book is well written. She wrote journals throughout her life and that is why there is such excellent detail.
