QuotePublished by Seven Dials on 12th October, the book reveals how "Norwich's favourite son and best broadcaster" triumphed "against the odds. TWICE."Penned with the help of Neil Gibbons, Rob Gibbons and Steve Coogan, the memoir will relate how Partridge "heroically rebuilt his TV career, rising like a phoenix from the desolate wasteland of local radio to climb to the summit of Mount Primetime and regain the nationwide prominence his talent merits."But then something quite unexpected and moving happens, because Big Beacon also tells the story of a selfless man, driven to restore an old lighthouse to its former glory, motivated by nothing more than respect for a quietly heroic old building that many take for granted, which some people think is a metaphor for Alan himself even though it's not really for them to say.*"Leaving his old life behind and relocating to a small coastal village in Kent, Alan battles through adversity, wins the hearts and minds of a suspicious community, and ultimately shows himself to be a quite wonderful man."* The two strands will run in tandem, their narrative arcs mirroring each other to make the parallels betwehttps://www.comedy.co.uk/shop/news/7328/alan-partridge-writes-3rd-booken the two stories abundantly clear to the less able reader.

Quote from: Dr Rock on May 12, 2023, 06:03:40 AMThe audio-books are pure Partridge Fentanyl! (while some of the TV stuff is more like prison skag).
Quote from: gotmilk on May 11, 2023, 08:54:22 PMIt's very much a Gibbons era thing, these weird, Butterfield-esque vocal tics. Is there any precedent for that kind of affect in the Iannucci era? It always feels a bit much for me, but I appreciate a lot of people enjoy it.
