About this product
- DescriptionIf you were to put David Sedaris and Glenn O'Brien in a blender and add a dash of New York and Hollywood gossip, you would wind up with Alan Cumming. Described by Time magazine as one of the most fun people in show business, Cumming is a genuine triple-threat as a successful stage, television, and film star whose real-life vivacity, sophisticated wit, and charm tend to match that of his onstage personalities. In his third book, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams, he has composed a collection of true-life adventures-or rather, misadventures-that is sure to make the reader laugh out loud. This volume recounts the hysterical and sometimes embarrassing encounters that only Cumming could experience, from awkwardly enter- taining Elizabeth Taylor at Carrie Fisher's birthday party to being on a movie set with Helen Mirren and being mocked for wearing Croc sandals to making a friend's day by chasing down Oprah at a glitzy gala for a prized photograph with her. These forty-five stories are humorous vellas, each featuring memo- rable photographs-many simply snapshots taken by Cumming-that document or illustrate the tale told.
- Author BiographyAlan Cumming is an award-winning actor, artist, writer, activist, and man-on-the-scene. He's appeared on the London stage, and on Broadway, hosted his own cable talk show, and is the author of the New York Times bestseller Not My Father's Son: A Memoir and the novel Tommy's Tale.
