    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. But who is this mysterious enigma? Alan Gordon Partridge is the best – and best-loved – radio presenter in the region. 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....

    If you could sum up I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan in three words, what would they be?

    black belt chat


    What other book might you compare I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan to and why?

    The Bible, Great Expectations, The Story of My Experiments with Truth - Mahatma Gandhi, My Early Life: A Roving Commission - Winston Churchill, Poptastic: My Life in Radio - Tony Blackburn


    What does Alan Partridge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Alan's personal reading of the book lends the words a rich timbre which, combined with his signature rhythm and a pair of noise-cancelling headphones can lead to tears, laughter or literally incontinence all over the very same page.


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

    Sorry I should have read this question first as I explained my laughter, tears and urine expulsion in the previous question.


    Any additional comments?

    It makes the lives of Richard Madeley and Alan Titmarsh look positively tame.
