Adapted by James Roose-Evans from Helenes Hanffs autobiographical work of the same name, 84 Charging Cross Road is a story about long-distance relationships.
In 1949, Helene, in search of obscure classics and British literature titles she had been unable to find New York City, notices an ad in the Saturday Review of Literature and contacts Marks & Co., a London bookseller located at 84 Charging Cross Road. Employee Frank Doel fulfills her requests, and a long-distance friendship evolves, not only between the two, but between Helene and other stadd members as well. They exchange Christman package, birthday gifts, and food parcels to compensate for post-World War II food shortages in Britian. Their letters include discussions about topics as diverse as the sermons of John Donne, the Brooklyn Dodgers, the cornation of Elizabeth II, and how to make Yorkshire pudding.
