When Helene Hanff, a New York script-reader, sees an ad in the Saturday Review of Literature for a London bookstore that does mail order, she writes to see if they can help with her “antiquarian taste in books.” So begins a twenty-year relationship through an exchange of letters. At first the letters are between Helene and the bookshop manager Frank Doel. But their warmth and humour, along with the generous gifts of food parcels, soon endear Helene to the entire staff and their families.
