Product description

Review

''A beautiful book - sad, funny, haunting, surprising, suspenseful, gut-wrenching, endearing. It will linger inside of you long after you turn the final page.'' --Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Live Wire

''Equal parts memoir, whodunit, and manual for living, Not My Father's Son is a beautifully written, honest look at the forces of blood and bone that make us what we are, and how we make ourselves.'' --Neil Gaiman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Anansi Boys

''Cumming uses all his vocal experience and charm in this searing memoir. His unashamedly honest and emotionally raw remembrance of surviving his abusive father is a must-hear . . . Delivering stories that are both harrowing and at times hilarious, Cumming reaches through your earphones and doesn't let go. Make sure you carry a pocket of tissues. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.'' --AudioFile

''Cumming eschews the empty calories of celebrity fluff to share the deeply personal but ultimately life-affirming truth of his harrowing childhood and fascinating family history . . . Cumming's eccentric style and assured voice shine brightly on every page, while escorting readers and fans on a memorable journey that is simultaneously insightful, brave, moving, and witty.'' --Booklist

''A raw, revealing memoir from a courageous actor and writer.'' --Kirkus Reviews

''A moving read that fans of the man and of memoirs won't want to put down.'' --Library Journal

Product Description

'One of the most memorable, heart-stopping autobiographies I have ever read' STEPHEN FRY

WINNER OF THE SLIGHTLY FOXED BEST FIRST BIOGRAPHY PRIZE
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
ATTITUDE MAGAZINE'S BOOK OF THE YEAR

A beloved star of stage and screen, Alan Cumming's life and career have been shaped by a complex and dark family past - full of troubled memories, kept buried away. But then an unexpected phone call from his long-estranged father brought the pain of the past hurtling back into the present, and unravelled everything he thought he knew about himself. Not My Father's Son is the story of his journey of discovery, both a memoir of his childhood in Scotland, and an investigation into his family history which would change him forever.

'Equal parts memoir, whodunnit and manual for living . . . beautifully written, honest . . . I was completely sucked in' NEIL GAIMAN
