84, Charing Cross Road - Helene Hanff

For the lover of books, 84 Charing Cross Road is a must read. This slim volume chronicles the twenty-year correspondence between feisty New York writer Helene Hanff and Frank Doel and his fellow employees of Marks & Co., a London bookseller specializing in rare and antique books. Under the guise of requesting and delivering hard to find books, Ms. Hanff, Mr. Doel and eventually Mrs. Doel and other Marks' employees develop a warm and humorous correspondence covering rationing in England, politics in America and the trials, tribulations and joy of life on both sides of the Atlantic. 84 Charing Cross Road is a wonderful glimpse into the lives (and onto the bookshelves) of these charming correspondents whose wit and generous spirit will delight you. So dear reader, do pick up 84 Charing Cross Road. I dare you to not pass it on to a fellow book lover (preferably through the good old USPS).
