Praise for Nomad:
'Funniest book of the year' Sunday Telegraph
'Alan Partridge's Nomad is almost certainly the funniest book ever written' Caitlin Moran
'Sensationally funny. What brilliant writing' Richard Osman
'Sensational' Jenny Colgan
'Hilarious' Jon Ronson
'Brilliantly funny' Marcus Brigstock

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.
