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 memoir. In 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 20th century.

In pieces by Sally Field
Powerful! We are always more than we think we are. Sally, like most of us, needed many years of gaining wisdom to realise that. Thank you Sally for revealing your soul.

Sally Field wrote and spoke masterfully.
The author wrote and spoke in utter profoundness and authenticity. This was a wonderful piece of literature in which a psychological strip tease has taken place. Sally Field, being a woman who has never stopped "growing " , displays courageously many of her mistakes, misturns, misfortunes and her feelings of inadaquitcy in this wonderful book.
