Lolita - Vladmir Nabukov
My favourite novel of all time. I will never be able to explain my love for Nabukov's writing and this book. I got it from a guy called Oren (I think) who let me stay at his place for a few days while I was gypsying around TLV in 2014 for almost 3 months 😆 (to be fair I stayed in the desert for 10 days during that time as well) I had no accommodation, only couch surfing, and I met the most interesting characters on my way, none of which were unsavoury but only generous, kind and amusing. Although this guy and I didn't really talk much, I just stayed in the spare room while his house mate was away. I saw the book in his house and told him it was my favourite novel but that I didnt have a copy, so he gave it to me. He stayed just around the corner from my very good friend Ziv who I crashed at for a month before I had to get my ass out of Kikar Masaryk and move on with my adventures 😝
The Doors of Perception - Aldous Huxley
Such an important piece of literature in rock history as Jim and Ray Manzarek's inspiration to name The Doors. This was a Christmas present from the legendary Zoltan a few years back 😊 thank you. 🙏🎶 .
Thus Spake Zarathustra - Nietzche
Another friend of mine who I met during my 2014 escapades who is extremely close to me to this day. He was heavily into philosophy and Nietzsche's work. He gave this novel to me, comprised into four parts, which are equally incredible.
Lemmy, Steven Tyler, Joe Strummer, Nikki Sixx, Ace Frehley - all autobiographies. Olly's dad Andy gave these to me when we visited Knysna for Christmas in 2016, I was fucking stoked. 😁 thanks again Andy. 🤘
