"Describing 84, Charing Cross Road as heartwarming would be a gross understatement. I received this book from a customer who stepped into the store and so firmly believed the book was special that he bought it for me. This memoir is a series of letters exchanged between a young writer and an independent bookstore, and I grinned ear-to-ear reading nearly every letter. It’s funny, charming, and I may have shed a tear in the span of its brief 97 pages. In all ways, 84, Charing Cross Road is about the kindness of strangers and the relationships we forge over books, and what could be more wholesome than that?"
A dramatization of the American Helene Hanff's 20-year correspondence with a London antiquarian bookshop. Also on this cassette is a witty duologue between a elderly general and his wife, played by John Mills and Peggy Ashcroft.
