Summary
"A magical concoction of the mischievous, tender, whimsical, and debauched real-life adventures of Alan Cumming, told in his own words and pictures... In these forty-five picture essays, Cumming recounts his real-life adventures (and often, misadventures), illustrated by his own equally entertaining photographs. From an awkward bonding session with Elizabeth Taylor to poignant stories about his family and friends to some harsh words of widsom imparted by Oprah that make up the title of this collection, You gotta get bigger dreams is as eclectic, enchanting, and alive as its author"--Dust jacket
