Not My Father's Son

Editorial reviews

Not My Father's Son
The Observer : Damian Barr (November 16, 2014)

Cumming recalls all the drama of a childhood spent in fear of paternal rages and beatings but he’s no drama queen and this is not a pity party.

There is no discounting the visceral punch of Cumming’s father-son face-offs, but one wishes the author had devoted a portion of “Not My Father’s Son” to exploring the roots of his father’s pathology.

A raw, revealing memoir from a courageous actor and writer.
