100 omiljenih knjiga Dejvida Bouvija

By In

DavidBowieread-750x400Dejvid Bouvi je jedno od najpoznatijih imena u pop svetu danas. Njegova smrt je prošle godine uzdrmala celu planetu, te su se ubrzo pojavljivale ne samo vesti o njegovoj smrti i muzici, već i o svim ostalim sferama njegovog života.

Iako se jedna od njegovih pesama zove ”I Can’t Read”, Bouvi je baš dosta voleo da čita. Dok je bio živ, on je sastavio listu od čak 100 omiljenih knjiga. Sledi lista tih knjiga za sve njegove fanove, koji će se možda njihovim čitanjem približiti Bouvijevom svetu malo više. U samim naslovima knjiga možete videti Bouvijevu svestranost – od stripova do velikana kao što je Vilijam Fokner ili  klasika kao što je Paklena pomorandža Entonija Burdžesa; od epova kao što su Inferno ili Ilijada pa sve do poezije savršenog T. S. Eliota. Stoga, u čast Dejvidu Bouviju od čije je smrti pre neki dan prošlo tačno godinu dana, pustite sebi neke njegove melodije i pokušajte da iščitate neke od njegovih favorita.
