Q's Legacy - Helene Hanff

Q's Legacy - Helene Hanff (1985)

I loved 84 Charing Cross Road, it still remains one of my favorite books and the story still touches me to this day.  This book, is the story of the influences of Helene Hanff and her writing, and the impact the publication of 84 had on her life.

She lived a pretty modest life, living in a studio apartment most of her adult life, and only making it to London after Frank Dole had died, which made me tearful.  She is a talented writer and I enjoyed this little tome, it made me want to search out a copy of 84, and see if I can get a copy of the DVD movie.
