Legendary performer Alan Cumming speaks with WAMC's Joe Donahue about his new collection of autobiographical essays, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams: My Life in Stories and Pictures (Rizzoli, New York), in which the actor, singer, writer, and man-about-town, shares wildly entertaining, real-life stories of louche late-night parties, backstage anecdotes, life in Los Angeles and New York, and cross country road trips with his beloved dog, Honey. Illustrated by Cumming's own photographs, the charming, thoughtful, and wickedly hilarious stories in this collection will leave the reader feeling like a lucky member of Alan Cumming's inner circle. This event will be recorded for NPR's The Book Show and is copresented with Oblong Books & Music.

A Q&A and book signing will follow this talk.
Listen to a 2014 Fresh Air interview with Alan Cumming about his starring role in Cabaret and his memoir Not My Father's Son.

Read about Alan Cumming's penchant for photography, favorite interior designer, and the most important thing a reader should take away from his new book You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams: My Life in Stories and Pictures in Architectural Digest.
