Alan Partridge: Nomad


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.

    Very enjoyable, though for me slightly less so than the more general I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan. Still plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. ...

    Not quite as good as I, Partridge but that's because the first book was a tone perfect pastiche of the celeb biography. This one covers some areas we've already seen from the POV of the omniscient tv ...
