Book Review
84, Charing Cross Road is a charming record of bibliophilia, cultural difference, and imaginative sympathy. For 20 years, an outspoken New York writer and a rather more restrained London bookseller carried on an increasingly touching correspondence. In her first letter to Marks & Co., Helene Hanff encloses a wish list, but warns, "The phrase 'antiquarian booksellers' scares me somewhat, as I equate 'antique' with expensive." Twenty days later, on October 25, 1949, a correspondent identified only as FPD let Hanff know that works by Hazlitt and Robert Louis Stevenson would be coming under separate cover. When they arrive, Hanff is ecstatic--but unsure she'll ever conquer "bilingual arithmetic."

From Publishers Weekly
From 1978 to 1984, Hanff ( 84 Charing Cross Road ) recorded a five-minute broadcast once a month for the BBC's Woman's Hour about her everyday experiences as a resident of New York City. Reproduced here, the selected scripts provide a witty, if somewhat rosy account of the adventures of Hanff and friends, fellow apartment dwellers in Manhattan. Included are reports on such events as author readings and free concerts, and observations on the Shakespeare Garden in Central Park, the St. Patrick's Day Parade and the ups and downs of city dogs. Hanff's love of her adopted city is reflected in upbeat anecdotes describing New Yorkers at their best--as good neighbors and charming eccentrics. A light diversion.
