This book of letters in a comfort read, one of the best that is out there.
Helene Hanff of New York wrote letters to the employees of the London Bookstore Marks & Co and they wrote back. First it was only about ordering books, but Hanff wasn’t a business-like person. In the 20 years they corresponded, they never met. It was another time. But their letters are warm, personal, loving and full of the love for books.
