Field re­veals all

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Ageing With Attitude -

In Pieces, by Sally Field, €14.98 Emmy and Os­car-win­ning ac­tress Sally Field cel­e­brated her 72nd birth­day three days ago and it’s timely her re­cently pub­lished mem­oir brings some clo­sure around those seven decades as she tells her story for the first time — re­veal­ing her ex­pe­ri­ences of a chal­leng­ing child­hood, the craft that helped her find her voice, and the pow­er­ful emo­tional legacy that shaped her jour­ney as a daugh­ter and a mother. 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. Field brings read­ers be­hind the scenes for not only the highs and lows of her starstud­ded early ca­reer in Hol­ly­wood but deep into the truth of her re­la­tion­ships in­clud­ing her com­pli­cated love for her mum.
