84 Charing Cross Road
by James Roose Evans
A tender and heart-warming tale of transatlantic friendship, 84 Charing Cross Road is a bittersweet comedy based on the extraordinary true story of the remarkable relationship that developed over 20 years between a vivacious New York writer and a London bookseller. Through their exchange of humorous and often intimate correspondence a snapshot of Britain from the post-war 1940s to the swinging 60s is revealed, alongside a touching human story that still resonates today. A love story about good literature, between Helen and Frank
Helen Hanff is a struggling writer in New York who first writes to Marks & Co an antiquarian book store in London, Frank Doel is a delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helen who shows her gratitude by sending “care packages”.
