Description

Alan Partridge: Nomad THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

Praise for Nomad:
'Funniest book of the year' Sunday Telegraph
'Alan Partridge's Nomad is almost certainly the funniest book ever written' Caitlin Moran
'Sensationally funny. What brilliant writing' Richard Osman
'Sensational' Jenny Colgan
'Hilarious' Jon Ronson
'Brilliantly funny' Marcus Brigstock

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.

    Quite amusing with many notable anecdotes, Alan goes on a journey from Norwich to a power station his father had journeyed to about 50 years prior for a job interview! Alan meets some interesting people along the way and talks to them in a way only Alan can do. Needless to say, he always has the last laugh. To sum it up I’d say this book is “Lovely Stuff”, something Shakin Stevens once said about another of Alan’s books, Bouncing Back. Well worth the read!! 👍
  • Classic Partridge!

    Very clever. As you read, it's as if you are watching him on screen, his words come alive on the page! Just absolutely typical of Alan Partridge, which is completely untypical of anyone else, you never know what is going to happen or send him off into a rant next. Had me belly laughing numerous times, absolute Alan gold!
  • Not 'I Partridge' good, but good

    Thoroughly enjoyed this read. Do seem to recall seeing the man himself on his pilgrimage through Pinner
