What other readers are saying about this title:
Champlin Library Staff said:
In 1949, American writer Helene Hanff wrote to Frank Doel, an employee of British bookstore Marks & Co., looking for secondhand books. Their correspondence would blossom into a friendship that lasted 20 years. The warm, witty letters are collected here, giving the reader a bird's eye view of their relationship as they discussed books, life in postwar London, and their changing cultures. Though 84, Charing Cross Road was also made into a play and a wonderful movie with Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins, it is the book that best conveys the charm, kindness and zest of the writers. There aren't enough good things to say about this book!
