UPCOMING - November 10, 2020

In Pieces

by 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 again with her artistic range and emotional acuity. Yet, one character always remained hidden – the shy and anxious little girl within.

Throughout most of her life, Field sought acceptance and fought feelings that she wouldn’t be loved if she wasn’t good enough – and she struggled to define what “good enough” was and how to get there. She found one kind of “good enough” with acting and with the capacity to lose herself in a character, or rather, to develop a character to inhabit. After beginning her career in lightweight television sitcoms, Field grew more serious about understanding and developing her craft, and spent years in various actor’s studio groups. She eventually broke away from the bubbly ingénue image with dramatic blockbusters like Sybil and Norma Rae.


Along the way, she acquired and shed several husbands, gave birth to three children whom she raised mostly alone with the help of her mother, and struggled always to come to terms with a childhood trauma that would haunt her throughout her adult life. Field’s relationship with Burt Reynolds toward the end of the book was especially sad given the energy he sapped from her. And, while she does discuss their relationship, it is more as a journey of growth and self-discovery than it is as a kiss-and-tell. Sally’s relationship with her mother, the heart of her life’s torments, was ultimately cemented peacefully when her mother was nearly on her death bed.

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.

 

“The sheer detail in the book is mind-boggling, but readers soon learn that she was a meticulous journal writer. The book is raw when it needs to be but the writing is always exquisite. After reading this book, I have come to admire her work as an actor even more.”

The Hamilton Affair

By Elizabeth Cobbs



Set against the dramatic backdrop of the American Revolution, and featuring a cast of iconic characters such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and the Marquis de Lafayette, The Hamilton Affair tells the sweeping, tumultuous, true love story of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler, from tremulous beginning to bittersweet ending - his at a dueling ground on the shores of the Hudson River, hers more than half a century later after a brave, successful life.

Hamilton was a bastard son, raised on the Caribbean island of St. Croix. He went to America to pursue his education. Along the way, he became one of the American Revolution's most dashing - and unlikely - heroes. Adored by Washington, hated by Jefferson, Hamilton was a lightning rod: the most controversial leader of the American Revolution.

Elizabeth Schuyler was the well-to-do daughter of one of New York's most exalted families -- feisty, adventurous, and loyal to a fault. When she met Alexander, she fell head over heels. She pursued him despite his illegitimacy and loved him despite his infidelity. In 1816 (two centuries ago), she shamed Congress into supporting his seven orphaned children. Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton started New York'sfirst orphanage. The only "founding mother" to truly embrace public service, she raised 160 children in addition to her own.

With its flawless writing, brilliantly drawn characters, and epic scope, The Hamilton Affair will take its place among the greatest novels of American history.

“A terrific historical fiction novel”

Alexander Hamilton’s incredible contributions to our American History are highlighted in this book. The fact that he had an illicit affair is not the meat of the book, but more of a sidelight. The story really highlights the way in which the citizens of that era lived and the personalities of our founding fathers”
