If you happen to pass by 84 Charing Cross Road kiss it for me I owe it so muchThis was my second reading of the book and I'm adding a star to my original rating I laughed a lot harder this time and even got a little choked up near the end I don't recall this much chortling cackling guffawing and snorting on my first time through The contrast between Helene Hanff's brash American informality and Frank Doel's staid British professionalism is delightful There's a certain charm in his politeness while at the same time one wonders how long it will take for him to loosen up His first letter to Helene begins Dear Madam to which she replies I hope 'madam' doesn't mean over there what it does here Her humor and generosity did slowly erode his reserve but it took years As she put it I write them the most outrageous letters from a safe 3000 miles awayOutrageous they are and charmingly witty I remember when e mail first started to take hold in the early 1990s I was working for a professor who mentioned to me that it was ahistorical We would henceforth have no permanent record of most of our written communication His comments stayed in my mind while I happily made the switch from snail mail to electronic Re reading this little treasury of collected letters made me think perhaps we've lost than just an outdated form of contact

I love this book and love the film they made of it too It is sloppy and sweet and warm and you know just right It is the sort of book one could read in an hour or two over a pot of tea on a cold winter's afternoon and just enjoy Pure delightIf you needed to be reminded that love of literature is as good a foundation of love of the world as any other 'religion' that the people we write to can be closer and dearer to us than those we see day after day then this really is a book written to remind you of just that
