"Laconic, funny and intensely human."
Robert Twigger, award winning author of Angry White Pyjamas
“My highlight this year was Steve Bonham's A Little Nostalgia for Freedom. Who doesn't love a guy with a guitar and a Fedora hat and a campfire vibe? Who doesn't love the notion of taking off, living in the desert, actually living the heart's desire? On my endless quest to live life to the full, Steve's thoughtful and thought-provoking easy engagement ticked my boxes."

“Bold and Innovative”
In his book A Little Nostalgia for Freedom Steve Bonham Invites everyone to consider again their own responses to some of life’s big challenges: why many of us never quite do what we what we mean to do; why, when so often we are comfortable, do we feel restless; how do we respond to sheer paradox of existence and flourish! As he says “perhaps the ultimate question of life is ‘when do we fit in, and when do we fall out?’”
In doing this as he takes on us on a journey through the pirates towns of Morocco, the Atlas Mountains to London, Hong Kong and the Sahara in search of source of and resolution to this our Little Nostalgia for Freedom.
