This was a hard book to read because of the troubled and inconsistant childhood that Alan grew up with. And then Alan was told that the man whom he thought was his father turned out to not be his biological father, I was hooked.

My mother was adopted and when she finally obtained her original birth certificate, her fathers name was not listed. So she and I did DNA tests to find out who my mothers family were. The whole process of doing a DNA test to find family is one that both my mother and I have been through so I could totally relate to Alans journey.

I have not seen much of him in the movies, but the one movie I have seen him in, that made a huge impression me, was Golden Eye, where he fidgets with a pen while working the computers and keeps saying -"I am invincible!" Which turns out to not be true.... ( )

Heartbreaking, sad, warm and inspiring memoir of a survivor ( )

So quickly read I forgot to log it at the time. Written to pull you along. Very slight but personable memoir. Peace to all involved. I recently heard Alan Cumming interview Cyndi Lauper on the radio and it was a divine stew of chewy accents. ( )

I rarely read non-fiction let alone autobiography but I heard Cumming interviewed in the radio and his story sounded interesting. Indeed it is with enough twists & turns as any enjoyable roller coaster ride. The early passages recounting his years of abuse are tough but only because they are raw and real. ( )

audiobook / diverse memoir (Scottish actor who is incidentally bisexual deals with family secrets and childhood trauma as revealed on a genealogy TV show)
as a trained and talented actor, Cumming is a dramatic storyteller, but I had trouble connecting with his story, which is quite dark and broody, but also meanders a lot as it switches back and forth from his past to his current life. I found the audiobook of [b:Educated|35133922|Educated|Tara Westover|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1506026635l/35133922._SY75_.jpg|53814228] (which is similarly traumatic but which employs an entirely different narrative style) to be a lot more compelling. Perhaps if I knew more about the author and his personality? I liked it ok, but this one probably wouldn't make it onto my list of recommended books. ( )
