by | Read by Brian Cox

Biography & Memoir • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Born in Dundee, Scotland, actor Brian Cox recounts the day of his birth, when his nervous, distracted father went to the registry office to register the newborn's name as Colin. However, due to an opinionated office manager, his father was talked into calling him Brian. With humor and grace, the versatile, well-respected actor offers candid insights into his early family life and the struggles that led to his becoming an internationally recognized theater, screen, and television actor. A fabulous storyteller, Cox offers tales filled with personal, sometimes gossipy, anecdotes spent among theater greats, brilliant directors, and assorted film personalities. Moments of self-awareness lead to moments riddled with gallows humor, while poignant moments are guaranteed to touch the heart. Smart, entertaining listening.
