  • Hanff was in search of obscure classics and British literature titles that she had been unable to find in New York City when she noticed an ad in the Saturday Review of Literature. She first contacted the shop in 1949, and it fell to Doel to fulfill her requests. In time, a long-distance friendship developed between the two and between Hanff and other staff members, as well, with an exchange of Christmas packages, birthday gifts, and food parcels to compensate for post-World War II food shortages in Britain. Their letters included discussions about topics as diverse as the sermons of John Donne, how to make Yorkshire Pudding, the Brooklyn Dodgers, and the coronation of Elizabeth II. Hanff postponed visiting her English friends until too late; Doel died in December 1968 from peritonitis from a burst appendix, and the bookshop eventually closed. Hanff did finally visit Charing Cross Road and the empty but still-standing shop in the summer of 1971, a trip recorded in her 1973 book The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street. A circular brass plaque on the building that now stands on the shop's former site acknowledges the story. (en)

  • 84 Charing Cross Road é o título de um livro de 1970 de Helene Hanff, posteriormente transformado em peça teatral e filme, que conta a história romanceada da escritora americana que, tendo dificuldades para encontrar obras raras em seu país, passa a corresponder-se ao longo de vinte anos com um livreiro londrino, chamado Frank Doel da firma Marks & Co. (co-proprietário de uma espécie de sebo, situada no endereço que dá título à obra). A correspondência de Hanff com Doel começa em 1949, depois que ela tinha visto um anúncio publicado no suplemento literário de um jornal novaiorquino. A Doel coube atender-lhe aos pedidos. Com o tempo a amizade postal foi crescendo, não apenas com Doel, mas também com seus sócios e passou a envolver a troca de presentes no natal, nos aniversários, o envio de alguns alimentos para compensar a escassez pela qual passava a Inglaterra de pós-guerra. O teor das cartas variava bastante, desde a discussão sobre os sermões de John Donne, receitas de pudim, beisebol até a coroação da Rainha Elizabeth II. Hanff protelou a visita aos seus amigos britânicos por muitos anos. Doel morreu em dezembro de 1968, e a livraria foi fechada. Visitou o lugar no verão de 1971, quando a loja já tinha fechado. Registou esta viagem no seu livro de 1973, The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street. Uma placa de metal circular hoje ostenta o prédio em que funcionou a livraria, como marco do local onde a história ocorreu. (pt)
  • 《查令十字路84号》(英语:84 Charing Cross Road)是由海伦·汉芙(Helene Hanff)于1970年撰写的一本书籍,书中集结了二十餘年来,作者本人同英国伦敦的一名古书销售商法蘭克·鐸爾(Frank Doel)之间的书信纪录,而后者所经营的Marks & Company书店的地址,正是查令十字路84号。该书之后被改编成了电影和戏剧。 作者汉芙居住于美国纽约,由于无法在该地区找到所需的晦涩艰深的英国文学著作,且偶然在《文艺周刊》上看到了一则Marks & Company书店销售古书的广告,因而于1949年首次联系了该书店,随后得到了法蘭克的答复。这之后,不单单在两位主人公之间,在汉芙和这家书店的所有员工之间,发展出了一段长距离的深厚友情。他们彼此交换圣诞节礼物、生日礼物,在英国因为二战而导致的食品短缺中,汉芙也常常随信附上一些食品包裹。他们在信中谈论的话题一般围绕书籍本身,诸如约翰·唐尼布道书的不同版本,如何制作约克郡布丁(Yorkshire Pudding),洛杉矶道奇(Brooklyn Dodgers)或者是伊丽莎白二世的加冕典礼。 汉芙曾在书信中多次表示将到英国旅行,并且造访该书店。然后由于各种各样的原因,迟迟未能成行。时过境迁,书店最终关门停业,而法蘭克和其他一些员工也相继下世。汉芙最终于1973年在出版商的赞助下拜访了远隔重洋的查令十字路84号,此行一个月的日记随后集结成册,出版了《The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street》一书。 Marks & Company书店现已停止营业,但是在查令十字路84号临街的墙上,如今钉上了铭牌,以记录这段读书人奉为佳话的故事。 (zh)
