With ribald humor, wit, and incredible insight, Alan seamlessly moves back and forth in time, integrating stories from his childhood in Scotland and his experiences today as the celebrated actor of film, television, and stage. At times suspenseful, at times deeply moving, but always incredibly brave and honest, Not My Father's Son is a powerful story of embracing the best aspects of the past and triumphantly pushing the darkness aside.

Alan tells his story with real honesty, vulnerability and courage. His willingness to share the painful details of his childhood and the journey of discovery and self-knowledge as he works through his recovery is inspiring.
He brilliantly weaves in the mysterious story of his grandfather, while at the same time he works at untangling a story his father has dropped on him.
It is an intimate look into the actor's life, his experiences and his thoughts.
I appreciate Alan's openness. I feel like I've made a very good friend.
