Not my father's son : a family memoir / Alan Cumming. - Large print ed. - Leicester : Charnwood, 2015. - 344 p. (large print) ; 23 cm.

Alan Cumming's father was the dark, enigmatic heart of Cumming family life - a man who meted out violence with frightening ease. But he was not the only mystery. Alan's maternal grandfather, Tommy Darling, had disappeared to the Far East after the Second World War. When Alan's mother was thirteen, the family was informed that he had died in an accidental shooting. Curious to explore this second mystery, Alan committed to filming an episode of the BBC's WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?. Then out of the blue his father, whom neither he nor his brother had spoken to for more than a decade, called. He had a secret to share - one that would shock his sons to the very core, and set in motion a journey that would change Alan's life forever.
