Product description

Review

‘A memoir as soulful, wryly witty, and lyrical as it is candid and courageous… Eye-opening and deeply affecting… Arresting in its dark disclosures, vitality, humour, and grace, Field’s deeply felt and beautifully written memoir illuminates the experiences and emotions on which she draws as an exceptionally charismatic, empathic, and powerful artist.’ (Booklist, starred review)

Impressive, candid and vivid’ (The Times)

‘Sally Field’s was one of the most revelatory memoirs of the year’ (Sunday Times)

‘Written by the actor over seven years, without the aid of a ghostwriter (a crutch often used by celebrity authors), this somber, intimate and at times wrenching self-portrait feels like an act of personal investigation — the private act of a woman, now 71, seeking to understand how she became herself, and striving to cement together the shards of her psyche that have been chipped and shattered over the course of her life.’ (New York Times Book Review)

‘Field fuels this aching, lyrical memoir with frankness about her emotional childhood, her conflicted relationship with the late Burt Reynolds, and how acting helped her interpret life in all its pain and beauty.’ (Entertainment Weekly 'Must List')

‘Field’s “pieces" are raw, heartbreaking, sometimes maddening but each builds insight to who she is — and that’s the point. This work, as she thinks of it, is meant to reveal her, not to name-drop or tell unimportant tales about movies made long ago.’ (AARP)

Beautifully writtenvividly captures the people who have meant most in her life… All come to life as if they are walking into the room where you are reading.' (Daily Telegraph)

'Blisteringly honest' (S Magazine)

'In Pieces is a book that feels wrenched from its author's soul.' (Mail on Sunday)

'The revelations come thick and fast…Field is a real writer, her prose uncluttered and direct…beautiful in its descriptive simplicity.' (Daily Express)

Product Description

A Sunday Times Book of the Year

A memoir as soulful, wryly witty, and lyrical as it is candid and courageous – Booklist, starred review
Impressive, candid and vividThe Times 
Beautifully written’  Sunday Times

Sally Field is one of the most celebrated, beloved and enduring actors of our time, and now she tells her story for the first time in this intimate and haunting literary memoirIn her own words, she writes about a challenging and lonely childhood, the craft that helped her find her voice, and a powerful emotional legacy that shaped her journey as a daughter and a mother.
 
Sally Field has an infectious charm that has captivated audiences for more than five decades, beginning with her first television role at the age of 17. From Gidget’s sweet-faced ‘girl next door’ to the dazzling complexity of Sybil to the Academy Award-winning ferocity and depth of her role in 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, most importantly, 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.
