Synopsis

In 1949, Helene Hanff, an aspiring writer in New York, types a letter to a London book shop, with a wish-list of rare and hard-to-find book titles. Manager Frank Doel, and his small staff of assistants fulfill most of her order, and in his covering letter, Frank promises to source the remainder. And so, with this modest shipment, the first of many, a special, true-life story unfolds, spanning some twenty years. Faxes, e-mails, texts, blogs and any form of social media are yet to arrive! The skill and magic of the written and spoken word is right here, to inform and delight.
