Journalist, presenter, broadcaster, husband, father, vigorous all-rounder: Alan Partridge. Star of action blockbuster Alpha Papa; a man with a fascinating past and an amazing future.

I Partridge: We Need To Talk About Alan is the memoir of Alan Partridge, the nation’s favourite broadcaster. It is a work of heart-breaking majesty.

Genuinely one of the best books of the last fifteen to twenty years, I, Partridge charts the highs, lows and middle bits in the life of one of Europe’s most revered inquisitors.


‘The funniest book of the year and possibly all time.’ *****Heat

‘This book is a genuinely hilarious read’ Shortlist

‘A rare treat… painfully funny in that inimitable Alan way.’ **** Sunday Express

‘As a parody of celebrity autobiography, it’s sound; but as a sustained piece of comic writing, it’s outstanding.’ **** Time Out

‘Brilliantly witty’ The Times

‘This should be nominated for the Booker prize…it’s a really funny book but it’s actually more than that…it blows my post-modern mind’ David Baddiel

'I, Partridge might just be the funniest book I've ever read. Proper laugh out load moment on every page.' Richard Bacon

‘This fictional memoir … could be the antidote to the celeb biographies that clog the Christmas book market. It's as acute a spoof of the publishing sub-genre as the Alan Partridge character is of a whole tranche of crassly opinionated lowbrow broadcasters…brilliantly sustained wit.’ Evening Standard

‘I, Partridge is an indispensable guide to what it’s like to be an all-round media personality in the 21st Century. In this, it compares very well with the finest in the genre.’ **** Mail on Sunday

***** The Telegraph

‘Extremely funny’ Word Magazine

‘Pure comic genius’ The Independent

‘The best book of the year… without peer… I urge people to go out and buy it.’ Danny Baker

‘An acutely observed mock-memoir, touching on the great man's highs (receiving a Burton's Gold Card) and lows (Toblerone addiction) in equally self-regarding manner.’ Independent on Sunday

‘A magnificent comedy creation’; ‘The significant celebrity book this year.’ The Guardian

    Some of the nicest bits of prose since the Renault Espace owners handbook! 0-60 in less than 7 seconds (this book) and excellent road holding (this book again)
  • Very thorough

    Does what Partridge does best - makes you cringe and laugh simultaneously. Brilliant!
  • Aha!

    By bookworm 2
    If you've seen any of the TV series then you'll know what to expect. Some of it is Partridge's retelling of things you've watched, but my favourite bits were where he gave insights into his childhood. Very funny.
  • Fantastic book, better audiobook

    By Nathan Leahy
    After listening to the laugh-out-loud audiobook I decided to go ahead and buy the book for my iPhone, don't get me wrong, the book is fantastic, but you get a whole different read just because alan himself is reading the book, emphasizing words just as he would on mid morning matters.
  • Hilarious

    What a fantastic mind Steve Coogan has to be able to creat such a historic background for a fictional character! Great references back to classic episodes of many of his TV shows, but some really fresh stories too! Excellent reading!
