This memoir focuses on Cumming's reaction to being told that his was not, in fact, his father. An appearance on the UK's Who Do You Think You Are was meant to reveal the mystery behind what happened to Cumming's maternal grandfather. Instead, his father's admission leads Cumming to resolve long-held memories of verbal abuse. (NoveList Plus).
