This charming classic love story, first published in 1970, brings together twenty years of correspondence between Helene Hanff, at the time, 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. " 84, Charing Cross Road will beguile and put you in tune with mankind... It will provide an emollient for the spirit and sheath for the exposed nerve." -- The New York Times "A unique, throat-lumping, side-splitting treasure." -- San Francisco Examiner

display_descriptionEn octubre de 1949, Helene Hanff, una joven escritora desconocida, envía una carta desde Nueva York a Marks & Co., la librería situada en el 84 de Charing Cross Road, en Londres. Apasionada, maniática, extravagante y muchas veces sin un duro, la señorita Hanff le reclama al librero Frank Doel volúmenes poco menos que inencontrables que apaciguarán su insaciable sed de descubrimientos. Veinte años más tarde, continúan escribiéndose, y la familiaridad se ha convertido en una intimidad casi amorosa. Esta correspondencia excéntrica y llena de encanto es una pequeña joya que evoca, con infinita delicadeza, el lugar que ocupan en nuestra vida los libros... y las librerías. 84, Charing Cross Road pasó casi inadvertido en el momento de su publicación, pero desde la década de los setenta se ha convertido en un verdadero libro de culto a ambos lados del Atlántico.
