I, Partridge, sold over 240k copies and David baddiel even went as far as recommending it for a booker prize. This is going to be another blockbuster from one of the Uk’s favourite comedy characters.
The deeply personal follow-up to alan Partridge's deeply personal autobiography, I, Partridge, charting the highs, lows and mediums of his one-man walking tour around (certain parts of) Britain.
In Nomad, Alan dons his boots, windcheater and scarf and embarks on an odyssey through a place he once knew – it’s called britain – intent on completing a journey of immense personal significance.
Diarising his ramble in the form of a ‘journey journal’, Alan details the people and places he encounters, ruminates on matters large and small and, on a final leg fraught with danger, becomes – not a man (because he was one to start off with) – but a better, more inspiring example of a man.
This deeply personal book is divided into chapters and has a colour photograph on the front cover. It is deeply personal. Through witty vignettes, heavy essays and nod-inducing pieces of wisdom, Alan shines a light on the nooks of the nation and the crannies of himself, making this a biography that biographs the biographer while also biographing bits of britain.
alan Partridge presents Mid Morning Matters on North Norfolk Digital. broadcaster, writer, motivational speaker, sports fan, thought-leader, businessman and consummate professional, Alan enjoys bitter shandy, shandied lager, high-end knitwear and personal success. He is currently doing very well.
