Win a signed copy of Alan Cumming’s new book here!

The Scottish actor who has made it to Broadway, winning a Tony along the way among many awards, and who wowed us during the 2016 Festival with his show at The Hub, is also a good writer.

Alan Cumming’s autobiography Not My Father’s Son is a moving account of his family relationships which were turned upside down after a phone call from his estranged father. The book is both gripping and revealing, and Cumming discussed it Ian Rankine when he came to the Edinburgh International Book Festival in 2015.

You can listen to the hour long podcast about it here.

Now he has a new book and he came to Blackwells in Edinburgh on Friday 25 November to sign copies for his fans. This book is entitled You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams and is a gorgeous account of some key moments in his life in both words and pictures.

And we have two free copies to give away courtesy of the lovely folk at Blackwells!

Answer this question here by 13 December 2016 to be in with a chance of winning one of them:
