I owe The Desk’s amazing proprietor a big thanks for introducing me to this book! What a great story, so well-told.
I loved this book when I first found it, at least 20 years ago. And I’ve read it many times since. One of my favorite “keepers” is an omnibus volume of Helene Hanff’s work produced by Barnes & Noble some years ago. In everything, she’s funny, original and entirely empathetic.
Just wanted to add that Better World Books offers to scan some books that are not available as a download. I do not know how they determine which books they may scan, but they recycle the physical book, as well.
