Alan Partridge: Nomad

by

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.

    This book is an utter ruddy shambles. If you love Partridge, you'll love its meandering ways. But if you're looking for something with any semblance of a plot, then steer clear. For devotees only!...

    Alan Partridge’s 'Nomad' is a fine piece of travel writing. This picaresque, Sebald-esque even, yarn concerns Partridge’s recreation, by foot, of an epic journey his father once took (or did he), ...

    If you read the other reviews of this book you will probably waste a good deal of your time and I can tell you why. But I don't know you so there isn't any reason I should do it. Why don't you read th...

    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. ...
