Alan Stoob: Nazi Hunter

In January 2012 I created a character on Twitter called Alan Stoob. Alan is an elderly Nazi Hunter based in Bedfordshire. He is 77, has a Dutch wife and a troubled past.

This is his website.

And here is his Twitter account.

In March 2012 I began writing a diary based on the character.

‘Alan Stoob: Nazi Hunter’ was published by Hodder & Stoughton in October 2014.

Here’s what The Times said.

Alan Stoob and its hero are laugh-out-loud funny… the human story at the heart of the diaries charting Alan’s failing marriage and his relationship with his depressed fortysomething son is tragically comic.

Here’s a BBC radio interview I did with comedian Phil Jupitus.

And here’s the book.

The book has been optioned in Hollywood. Any developments will be updated on this page.

Exciting innit?
