British comedian Steve Coogan has signed a new book deal. Best known for his character Alan Partridge along with countless film and TV roles, Coogan has agreed to write an untitled memoir for publisher Cornerstone. The book is expected to come out September 2014 in hardback and in paperback the following year. Coogan said in a statement:
I’m delighted to be writing my memoir. It promises to be a sojourn through the faltering first steps of a lower middle-class boy who watched television to the dizzy heights of a man who achieved not only a multi-Bafta-winning status on television but also became fully middle-class and managed to annoy the Daily Mail at the same time. Wow.
