The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street

A Review of Helene Hanff’s sequel to 84, Charing Cross Rd.

At the end of 84, Charing Cross Rd. when Helene’s correspondence with London bookseller Frank Doel seemingly came to an end – I cried.  Now, in Duchess of Bloomsbury Street when Helene first sees Charing Cross Rd. with her own eyes – I cried again.  Helene Hanff is simple, witty, clever, and utterly enjoyable every time she takes pen to paper.  I enjoy romping through London with her and cannot wait to read what she has to say about life in America when I finally find myself a copy of Apple of My Eye.  And, if I ever visit London, I hope I have even half as many wonderful people available like The Colonel and PB to escort me to all the best sites, and then maybe my trip could be almost as perfect.
