The name Tolkien comes from one of the best authors in the world: J.R.R Tolkien. He’s the author of the famous book called the Hobbit and the epic work The Lord of the Rings which was voted the most popular book of the twentieth century. When he was a kid, Tolkien was living very close to our apartment for the reason that his mother was taking him and his brother to The Oratory of Saint Philip Neri, that you can see from our living room and our kitchen. By playing in the neighborhood, Tolkien became very familiar with the two towers that are visible from the bedrooms: Perrott’s Folly and Edgbaston, he used them as an inspiration in the Lord of the Rings. Down Hagley road, right on the corner of our street, you can find the Plough & Harrow Hotel, an important place for Tolkien too, as he used to live there after his studies.
