Definitely a memoir versus an autobiography. A documentation of an unexamined life.

I've seen a lot of her films and loved them, I just didn't realize that artist names. Sorry bad memory when it comes to names of actors and singers.

What I like about this memoir is the way Sally told it and how she unapologetically tell her back story. As someone who was a victim of domestic violence this story triggered some sore spot but that didn't stop me from loving this book. I won't be rereading it though.

Trigger warning for the book: sexual and emotional child abuse

I've always loved Sally Field. As great of a writer as she is an actor, her memoir uncovers her as a complex character much like the ones she seeks out to understand and portray. I don't want to peg her story as one thread in a vast fabric, but it's certainly a timely one that fits into the current #MeToo moment. From her stepfather to her boyfriends and husbands and directors, Field has experienced the worst of men. I wanted to root for her, to stand up for her, to push her into shouting and leaving. I hope now after writing her story she finds peace.

The memoir closely follows her relationship to her mother, and ends when her mother passes away of cancer. This ending felt abrupt for me, and although I don't want Field to feel like she has to discuss every single film she's made, she did skim over some important ones (Forrest Gump, Steel Magnolias). Maybe I feel this way because those are my favorites and my namesake.
