Book Review: In Pieces

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.

With raw honesty 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 account of life as a woman in the second half of the twentieth century.

In Pieces was published September 18, 2018, from Grand Central Publishing.

My wife and I listened to Sally narrator her life story while driving on our vacation last week. Hearing this powerful story, in her own voice, was very moving. While I knew about her career and her involvement with Burt Reynolds, there was many eye-opening moments in her life. If you are a fan, I would strongly recommend the book - and recommend listening to the audio even more so.
