About the book...
The deeply personal follow-up to Alan Partridge’s autobiography, I, PARTRIDGE, charting the highs, lows and mediums of Alan’s one-man walking tour around (certain parts of) Britain. 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, and in doing so challenges us to ask to some pretty profound questions. ‘Who are we?’ ‘Why are we here?’ And, quite simply, ‘How?’
