i fell in love with this story, a true glorious, funny and terribly sad story years ago. When i finally ended up living in London one of the first things i did was to find 84 Charing Cross Road. Internet was very limited in those days, so there was little information. i cannot bare to mention what it is now, so i won’t, and instead i shall slightly replace the spot with this little shop.
Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins in the film, and i am almost absolutely sure that the radio recording from the BBC was also Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins. If you have not read the book, or seen the film – do – it is most heavenly.
