Baggage: Tales from a Fully Packed Life by Alan Cumming 272 pages

Cumming’s second memoir begins with his first marriage and ends with his second. The decades in between describe his life as an actor, the people he meets, and how Cumming evolved from an abused child to a satisfied, authentic individual.

I was in the mood for a juicy, gossipy read and Baggage did not disappoint. Very often Cumming names names and describes the pluses and minuses of the life of an actor. He is a good writer, and although at times he delves too deep into his own psyche, it was enjoyable reading about most of his experiences.
