Helene Hanff (1978)
A lot of fun! Take a tour to all the tourist spots of New York City with the author of 84 Charring Cross Road. When asked to write the text for a Big Apple tour guide, Hanff realized that she had to reacquaint herself with many of the sites that make her city famous. Written in her usual acerbic style, this is great fun for anyone who’s ever been to NYC or dreamed of going. The recent edition, printed in 1988, has been updated by the author.
