The book consists of a series of letters between New York writer Helene Hanff, in search of books by certain British authors, and the London bookseller, Frank Doel of Marks and Co. at 84, Charing Cross Road, who finds them for her. The letters span 1949 to 1969 and form the basis for a deepening friendship. The film version of the same name starred Anne Bancroft, Anthony Hopkins, and Judi Dench.
