Not since Shakespeare&Co. of Time Was Soft There has a European bookstore touched me so.  This collection of letters between Helen, Frank, and others from Marks&Co. was delightful, beautiful, and oh so sad.  I cannot wait to read its sequel and other work by Helene Hanff.

    I am always impressed by the reading you choose and I wondered if you have read “The Long Walk” by Slavomir Rawicz. It was a gift to me from a friend and I would love to hear your take on it. It has me spellbound.
