Journalist, presenter, broadcaster, husband, father, vigorous all-rounder – Alan Partridge – a man with a fascinating past and an amazing future. Gregarious and popular, yet Alan’s never happier than when relaxing in his own five-bedroom, south-built house with three acres of land and access to a private stream.

A literary masterpiece, if it were a novel - which incidentally it isn't, but if it was it probably would be.

Instead it's a brutally honest, behind the camera, candid and often heartbreaking account straight from the pen of the original Norwich based Hell-raiser himself.

Surviving kidnap, confectionery abuse and shooting a man dead - live on national TV. The best presenter BBC Top Gear (Old Top Gear) never had pulls no punches.

I Partridge soars highly amongst the literary giants.

Almost as good as Rob Brydons book.

Don't miss this one.
