This is a lovely epistolary book chronicling Helene Hanff’s 20-year relationship with Marks & Co., an antiquarian bookshop in London. Hanff, a struggling American author/book lover began the correspondence in 1949 with a simple request for out-of-print books. The exchanges between the feisty Hanff and the reserved British proprietor, Frank Doel, are charming, and present a kinder, simpler time when friendships could and did slowly blossom over time.
