About the Author
Helene Hanff (1915-1997) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In the 1940s and '50s she wrote plays and television scripts in New York City, but found little success until her best-known book, 84, Charing Cross Road, was published in 1970. The book was a smash hit and has been adapted for the radio, stage, film, and television.
Reviews
"A real-life love story . . . A timeless period piece. Do read it." The Wall Street Journal

"Those who have read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a novel comprised of only letters between the characters, will see how much that bestseller owes 84, Charing Cross Road." --Medium.com

"[84, Charing Cross Road] will beguile an hour of your time and put you in tune with mankind. . . . It will provide an emollient for the spirit and a sheath for the exposed nerve." --The New York Times

"A unique, throat-lumping, side-splitting treasure." --San Francisco Examiner

"This book is the very simple story of the love affair between Miss Helene Hanff of New York and Messrs Marks and Co, sellers of rare and secondhand books, at 84, Charing Cross Road, London." --Daily Telegraph (London)
