Amazon Book Review Podcast: Our Interview with Sally Field

Jon Foro on February 15, 2019


From Gidget to The Flying Nun, Norma Rae, and even The Cannonball Run, Sally Field has enjoyed an award-winning career on the big and small screens. But her “girl next door” charm masked the depth and difficulties of her "real life," including a troubled childhood, professional challenges, and complicated, often fraught relationships with her mother and high-profile romantic partners. In Pieces could have been just another Hollywood tell-all, but instead it’s an honest, open, and refreshing account of an extraordinary life and talent.  

She recently visited the Amazon offices in Seattle, speaking before a large audience about her long and successful career, the book, and the challenges she overcame to write it. Show highlights are listed below. See more author interviews in our podcast archive, or subscribe via iTunes or TuneIn
