I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan, new book, an "autobiography" by fictional character Alan Partridge, who actor Steve Coogan let loose on the years ago in the TV show Knowing Me, Knowing You, and later two series of I'm Alan Partridge.
Steve Coogan reads the book in the style of Alan Partridge, but it was apparently written by three-four people.
Alan Partridge is an interesting character. It's hard to say if he's a genuine a-hole, or if he's just really a mediocre blowhard, really self-centered, and extremely oblivious to the way he is coming across and the way he is treating other people. But in any case, if you're in a certain mood, it's really funny, both the shows and the book. The character has lots of zealous fans and it's one that Steve Coogan clearly has been struggling to step beyond.
