Alan Partridge: Nomad (Hardback)Alan Partridge (author)
- Not available
In Alan Partridge: 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.
Here, Alan begins his ‘The Footsteps of my Father’ tour at Manchester Deansgate, eager to discuss the pedestrianisation of Norwich city centre, the premature discounting of Nomad and the potential fate of his previous memoirs at the hands of the pulpers

There are just some times when you need a book that will make you laugh and this is it. Alan translates so well to the written word and even the incessant added footnotes are brilliant. Still very special.
