Plot SummaryIn 1949, New Yorker Helene Hanff, a writer with a passion for English literature and a small budget, answers an ad for the London bookstore Marks & Co., which offers rare volumes at low prices. As a result, she takes up a twenty-year correspondence with bookseller Frank Doel, and the store's other employees. They exchange letters and gifts and form a long-distance friendship, but, sadly, never meet face-to-face.
