In Pieces
In Pieces | Sally Field
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.

Overall a very compelling memoir that I could not put down. For the most part it was a deep dive into her life and work. However I felt she got to her later work and skimmed most of it. The work I would know more due to my age. I wanted more of that but it is her memoir and she gets to decide what it important, so I respect that. I also really connected with how she saw herself when she was young so I enjoyed that part.

When I think of an actress, I think of a woman like Sally. Fractured, In Pieces, & made whole by the craft. She was able to summon a strength as a character that she never seemed to have as a young woman.

But Sally, I wished you had let us see you grow. The book jumps from her successes as Norma Rae quickly, without stopping, through her late 30s, 40s, and 50s to arrive at the end of her mother‘s life in Sally‘s 60s. That was unsatisfying. 3.5⭐️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
This was a wonderful book and hearing Sally tell her story in her own voice made it even more touching and heartfelt. Could use this for the #booked2020 #setinhollywood prompt, but I‘ve already filled that. Thinking about using it for #parentchildmemoir but there‘s another I want to use for it. What to do?!
ETA: Decided to use this for #bookclubworthy
3/36

I love seeing young Sally on the cover, but I also wanted to share the back cover. Ms. Field is a wise woman, whose effort to learn to act in her 20s led her to Oscars and Emmys. Now she‘s written a book about her life, balancing poignant family stories with Hollywood truths. She‘s put the same effort into writing that she did into acting. 5 big stars!

This is a great choice for #SetinHollywood for #Booked2020. I have always liked Sally Field, although I wish the book had continued on into her more recent life. She‘s had a fascinating life, and she‘s quite honest about the tragedies and successes that have been part of it. The parts where she talks about acting are incredible- makes you appreciate how talented she is.

This was such a powerful memoir. Sally shares so many pieces of herself, much more than I would have expected. My heart broke into pieces right along with Sally‘s. She shares intimate memories & experiences with raw intensity. I have so much respect for this Hollywood icon; a survivor and trailblazer. From Gidget to Mary Todd Lincoln to a Flying Nun Sally Field has had quite a colorful screen life while masking a dark childhood & beyond. **TW**

TheRiehlDeal Glad you liked it! ☺️ I have this on my TBR. For me, I know her most from Mrs. Doubtfire. 3mo
Cinfhen This memoir was way darker than I was expecting but the audio narration read by Sally herself was so good @TheRiehlDeal I forgot she was in Mrs Doubtfire, I don‘t even think she mentions it or Steel Magnolias 🤔wait, I remember she does mention Steel Magnolias but I don‘t think she mentions Mrs. Doubtfire. And I don‘t recall her talking about Forest Gump🤷🏼‍♀️ (edited) 3mo

Bravely honest and straight forward memoir. One really gets what it‘s like growing up an unconfident starlet.
Also the image I had of Bert Reynolds was completely shattered.

Cinfhen I‘m only in the first 2 hours of this audio but I‘m blown away by both her ability to write so eloquently and her willingness to be so open. Much deeper than I expected. I‘m loving the audio so far. 3mo

Wow, Sally Field‘s can write so viscerally and passionately
I‘m sorry, Sally. You deserved better. I don‘t wish to judge your mother but she failed you. Weakness is not an excuse for a parent.

ljuliel Sounds very good, although very sad. Sometimes the best books ( to me ) are ones like this , that can emotionally hit you. 3mo
Cinfhen I was expecting a light, maybe gossipy book about Hollywood @ljuliel this is NOT what I‘m getting. It‘s raw but so elegantly told. Im amazed at Sally‘s composure and openness to go there. 3mo
ljuliel Yes, I never knew much about her. She was the Flying Nun when I was a kid. She has always been cute. I don‘t keep up much with movie stars , so my information on them is very sparse. It sounds as if she has overcome a lot to be where she is today. Probably lots of therapy ? 3mo

Because of Apple cheeked Sally Field, I thought all nuns were friendly and could fly when I was little. This is not an easy read. It is so well written and descriptive I had flashbacks. I think it was important for her to write it the way that she did and not hide it anymore, but anyone with a history should be prepared. This book is not so much about an acting career so much as being a person. I felt connected with her. Well done.

Throwing this out there because I don't know how *I* feel and wonder what others think about trigger warnings. Some graphic descriptions of trauma took me unaware in this book. I think it's important that they be told as is, but there is no doubt it stirred up emotional flashbacks I wasn't prepared to deal with today. Part of me wishes for a little heads up about that much detail.

#24B4Monday @TheReadingMermaid @andrew65 @Clwojick @RadicalReader

HOTPock3tt Thank you so much for the heads up omg I hadn‘t heard that about this book 😖 8mo
Kimmypete1 Sometimes I think trigger warnings go too far. The list of things that can trigger people could be endless and honestly it just gets to be overkill imo. However there are a few big things that I feel should get rigger warnings. Rape, abuse, animal abuse, brutal killing or abuse, etc. I feel like these have a different level of intensity and readers should be warned. (edited) 8mo
Kimmypete1 Things graphic in nature should also be warned about. You can‘t protect everyone from everything, but I feel like these (and others like them that I can‘t think of right now) should be givens. (edited) 8mo
See All 12 Comments
SumisBooks That's a very interesting topic. So do you think that book should come with trigger warnings on the back of the book? Maybe something like how CDs come with their parental advisory warnings? 8mo
cobwebmoth I have mixed feelings about trigger warnings. I don't want to upset someone by not warning them, but it's sometimes hard to know what will trigger another person. For example, someone warned about a possible trigger in a book I'm currently reading, but it wasn't at all triggering for me, but they didn't warn me about something else and I found that thing very upsetting.🤷‍♀️ 8mo
LibrarianRyan Most days I hate trigger warnings. I see it as self banning of books. But some people are more sensitive. But then again, if we avoid sensitive issues are we really dealing with those issues. I‘m not sure. I know ahead of time I won‘t read a book where a dog dies, but if I knew about that in every book I were ever wanting to read, I might miss a lot. See I have no real answer either. 8mo
Eggbeater @TheReadingMermaid I don't think it should ever be mandatory for the author to have it on there, but maybe they could elect to just so readers are prepared and don't read graphic rape scenes on the bus. 8mo
Eggbeater I don't know. It's possible I am too sensitive. 8mo
cobwebmoth Also, I'm really sorry that you are having to deal with being reminded of traumatic feelings. *hug* 8mo
Larkken I def appreciate warnings. I deal very poorly with rape scenes, and I'm not sure there's a way to deal well with them...? Sorry you were blindsided like that. 8mo
Clwojick It‘s definitely a hard topic. I don‘t feel strongly one way or another. I tend to make note of warnings by other who‘ve read the book, but I don‘t pay attention to anything being listed by the author. The only trigger that really gets me is detailed animal abuse. I would atleast like I bit of a warning so I can choose to skip that part, or skip the whole book. 8mo
Andrew65 Some themes I find very difficult or impossible to read. Child abuse for example. 8mo

I‘m a little surprised she spent more time on Burt R than on both of her marriages. I love seeing the hard choices of a mother and the craving for memorable work as an actor. Her relationship with her own mother provides fabulous insight into the woman behind the actor. Isn‘t that what a memoir should do - illume face hidden behind the mask?

Ultimately, a quick, intriguing read that leaves you informed w/o the residual gossip monger feeling!

BBooks She probably couldn't get published is she didn't write about Burt... 10mo

Vulnerable!

Everything about this was raw, introspective, personal and written in Field‘s on words. To say I‘m a huge fan is an understatement. But, if you‘re looking for reflections on an award-winning career, I‘m afraid you won‘t find them here as Sally focuses more on the moments in between when insecurities run high and confidence runs low.

Sally Field's childhood was not good, certainly, but she focused on just sharing negative experiences which became tedious & depressing. I wish she would've balanced it out a bit better because instead of loving her more I ended up kind of disliking her!🙈😳 FYI: Most of the book takes place in her youth up until the filming of Smokey and the Bandit. After that most movies only get mentioned by name but not the experience of working on them.

Unpopular opinion.

Although I admire Sally Field for opening up and addressing the difficult times in her life, there were many parts of this book I found to be boring and repetitive. Her descriptions of the anxiety and loneliness she felt throughout life were heartbreaking. She is a brave soul for discussing her childhood abuse, but the book wasn't as interesting as I wanted it to be.

Addison_Reads @LKstagemanager I probably would have enjoyed it more hearing her read it. Sometimes when reading memoirs, I lose the emotion behind the words, so when I can, I do prefer to hear the author read their own story. 12mo

1-13-19: My 4th finished book of 2019! In Pieces by Sally Field! I‘ve loved her since her days on Gidget and after reading this beautifully written book, I love her even more. At times heart wrenching, it made me cry when I least expected it to. Highly recommend! 👍🏼📖#️⃣4️⃣ #Inpieces #sallyfield #autobiography
