In Pieces Sally Field Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

In this intimate, haunting literary memoir, an American icon tells her story for the first time, and in her own gorgeous words--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.

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.

    Sally Field has written of her life with a total honesty that will be hard to duplicate. Her writing and her acting are both amazing. I’m sure her struggle to be herself and a loyal, loving daughter will help me be a better mother to my daughter. It’s never too late to love. Thank you, Ms Field.

    Dear Sally Field, I don’t know if you read these comments or not. Judging from the book, you probably won’t but I thought this book was outstanding. It’s the first book since OUTLANDER and VOYAGER that I couldn’t put down. You are a very skilled author. Thank you!

    Sally Field holds nothing back. It is a journey into her life, her lives, her joy and her pain. It is well-written and many will be able to relate. She definitely is a strong woman.
  • Candor and Bravery

    Amazing! “In Pieces” could have been twice as long and still been captivating. The memoir stands in stark contrast to the persona the public has been fed and illuminates the realities of a full life. Bravo, Ms. Fields, for you candor and bravery in sharing your truth.

    Didn’t like it...I always liked her as an actress but after this book I think she is a self centered egomaniac. The book is full of poor me. Who cares.

    Words fail me in describing how gripping this biography was. But I will recommend it to all my friends. I’ve always loved Sally Field, but now I want to go out and see all the films she was in with new eyes.

    A lovely and soul searching read. The humanness that connects us all is all too real and lifts off the pages to look you in square in the eye.
