In Pieces: a memoir; Sally Field
Grand Central Publishing - 2018
My Grandmother's Daughter
"I WAIT FOR my mother to haunt me as she promised she would; long to wake in the night with the familiar sight of her sitting at the end of my bed, to talk to her one more time, to feel that all the pieces have been put into place, the puzzle is solved, and I can rest.
Sometimes I think I've seen something out of the corner of my eye and I stop still in the middle of my Pacific Palisades kitchen, looking for the flutter of a sign; or I'm walking in the West Village, headed to my New York apartment, loaded down with groceries, when I hear her laugh ring out. I turn in circles looking for her. Where are you mom? Why won't you come?"
What do you think, Any interest in this one?
I love a good memoir and this one has been getting great reviews. Thanks to Grand Central Publishing for sending me this boo.
