84, Charing Cross Road
2016A classic for book-lovers all over the world, an exquisite new edition released at 100th anniversary of author's birth.
It all began with a letter inquiring about second-hand books, written by Helene Hanff in New York, and posted to a bookshop at 84, Charing Cross Road in London. As Helene's sarcastic and witty letters were responded to by the stodgy and proper Frank Doel of 84, Charing Cross Road, a relationship blossomed into a warm, charming, feisty love affair.
