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.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Outstanding book, I thought it would be difficult to follow I, Partridge (a classic) but Nomad is equally brilliant! I'm on my 3rd listen and it's just so funny. Cheers me up no matter the weather. I hope Coogan releases more books.

Born into a changing world of rationing, Teddy Boys, apes in space and the launch of ITV, Alan’s broadcasting career began as chief DJ of Radio Smile....

This is by far the best audiobook that I've ever listened to. I love Partridge and Steve Coogan has written an excellent biography which is so clever and witty. I laughed so many times. I will listen to this again and again. I just hope that he brings out another one.
