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.

Having read and loved her "84 Charing Cross Road" and "The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street", peeking behind the scenes, so to speak, with Hanff as she deals with life before, during and after her literary successes is just too much fun. Hanff takes this opportunity to fill in the holes from her two previous memoirs; such as describing how reading and writing grabbed her when she was young and how she came to seek out books from a second-hand bookshop across the Atlantic. But most important to me is this is a real description from Hanff about what she did and how she felt, shared as if with a good friend sharing a pot of tea, and I thank her, posthumously, for her trust in the fans of her writing.
PS - first, read "84 Charing Cross Road" (at least)
