A heartwarming love story about people who love books for readers who love books

This funny, poignant classic love story showcases the power of the written word to bring people together. The story unfolds through a series of letters between Helene Hanff, a freelance writer living in New York City, and a used-book dealer in London at 84, Charing Cross Road. Through the years, though never meeting and separated both geographically and culturally, they share a winsome, sentimental friendship based on their common love for books. Their relationship, captured so acutely in these letters, is one that has touched the hearts of thousands of readers around the world and was the basis for the film starring Anthony Hopkins and Anne Bancroft.
