The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street
Book #94 Read in 2015
The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street by Helene Hanff
This is the sequel to the book 84 Charing Cross Road, which was a collection of letters between a NYC author (Hanff) and a British bookseller. In this book, Hanff has finally made it to London, as her book is now being published there. Before she leaves New York, a friend tells her to keep a diary or she won't remember all the details of her London trip. She does and this book is the diary entries, telling of people she meets, sites she sees and the wonderment she feels of people treating her like royalty. A quick read, I borrowed this book from the town library.
