Following the success of his two previous books, Steve Coogan's alter ego is back with another autobiography, Alan Partridge: Nomad, which is set to be released later this year.

For his new book, Alan Partridge donned his walking boots, windcheater, and scarf and headed out on a one-man journey of immense personal significance through certain parts of Britain.

Set to be released on October 20, Nomad is a follow up to his 2011 volume I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan, in which he revealed his tragic Toblerone addiction, and his more recent mockumentary, Scissored Isle, which saw the Norwich radio presenter tour the North meeting 'real people'.

In a video posted online to promote the book's release, Steve Coogan's character mocks Game of Thrones before revealing that he believes 'the future is not in TV, it is in books - e and paper, that's why I was happy to sign up with Orion to bring you Alan Partridge: Nomad.'

He adds: 'Through witty vignettes, heavy essays and not inducing pieces of wisdom, I shine a light on the nooks of the nation and the crannies of myself, It's a piece of work of which I'm immensely proud. And if I had to sum it up in one word, that word would quite simply be 'hope'.'

Nomad has been penned by Steve Coogan, along with Rob and Neil Gibbons, who have also worked on I, Partridge, Mid Morning Matters and Partridge's 2013 feature film Alpha Papa.

The book is set to be published by Trapeze, an imprint of Orion, who said: '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.'
