Like many people I saw a movie first. Naturally due to media constraints, you expect certain amount of the book to be homogenized. So I wanted to read what was missing. To my amazement very little was missing or modified. I don't normally read this sort of book. So I was surprised at finding myself wanting more when it finished. Also until I read the book I did not realize that Charing Cross Road was a real place. The whole book is a collection of correspondence between Helene Hanff an avid book reader and Frank Doel an agent for British bookseller. My wife has taken this one step further and is collecting all the books that were mentioned in the correspondence. Some of these books appear to have been reprinted due to this publication. All I want to know is what became of all the other people described in the correspondents that not specifically die?
