Alan Cumming

Published February 22, 2015 by neverwearmatchingsox

Alan Cumming, stage and screen star, writes a brutally honest biography about his childhood, his family and the discoveries made while filming Who Do You Think You Are?. Born the second of child of Alex Cumming and Mary Darling, Alan was forced to work for his father as a young boy. He often did not perform those work duties up to his father’s standards and was punished as such. This is a very personal look at his life but never do you think he is playing the victim. He seems to have used his childhood as a model for which to live his adult life, as so many of us do, but he doesn’t do what his father did instead leading his life respecting others and loving unconditionally. I will read this again once all the holds are gone through at our library.
