Alan Partridge fans have it good in 2016.

There’s been a second series of Mid Morning Matters, the brilliantly funny spoof documentary Scissored Isle and now there’s a new book on the way titled Alan Partridge: Nomad.

Penned by Steve Coogan, Rob Gibbons and Neil Gibbons, it’s a follow-up to I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan, the side-splitting autobiography that put the Norwich broadcaster back on the map in 2011.

The Alan Partridge Twitter feed (which only follows one other account: Shakira) revealed the Nomad book cover and October 20 release date for the hardback edition.

The official synopsis for the sure-to-be-pulped tome is also out in the open, and here it is in full:-

“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.”

It’s sounding like it’ll be 320 pages of comedy dynamite. 

Alan Partridge: Nomad will be released on October 20.
