#DailyBookQuote 9Nov13 : Helene Hanff’s 84, Charing Cross Road

#DailyBookQuote : 9th November 2013

Helene Hanff

–          Helene Hanff (April 15, 1916 – April 09, 1997)

–          Helene Hanff’s 84, Charing Cross Road

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 are responded to by the stodgy and proper Frank Doel of 84, Charing Cross Road, a relationship blossoms into a warm and charming long-distance friendship lasting many years.
