The Duchess of Cambridge's favourite pass time THE DUCHESS THE DUCHESS resides in one of the best kept historic gems the former KAS Bank and W Hotel Amsterdam where guests are introduced to the elegance of traditional London hospitality balanced with Viennese grandeur Offering dining cocktails and a private dining experience in Amsterdam In a follow up to her hugely popular 84 Charing Cross Road Helene Hanff takes us to London The book is written as diaryjournal entries on her first and last trip to the city she had dreamed of visiting Alas her favorite bookstore which she immortalized in her earlier book was no but the success of that first book resulted in instant friends I loved how enthusiastic she was about seeing the literary landmarks she had so long dreamed about I loved her reactions to differences and how she managed to “go with the flow” particularly loved her exchange with the front desk when she wanted her dress pressed and her first experience ordering a “martini” Hubby and I shared uite a laugh over that episode Just makes me wish I had known Hanff in person and had the chance to travel with her no matter where I think we would have found something to captivate and enthrall usDefinitely read 84 CCR first but you’ll want to read this one as well especially if you’re planning a trip to London A week ago I read 84 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff I found the concept of writing to the same pen pal over a twenty year period to be a refreshing and charming idea for a book That the book has endured for nearly fifty years shows that many share my views of this slim memoir In the comments of the review it was brought to my attention that Hanff had written a follow up to Charing Cross Road Twenty years after she began correspondence Hanff finally made it to London A friend encouraged her to keep a diary The result was The Duchess of Bloomsbury StreetFollowing the positive reception of 84 Charing Cross Road Deutsch Publications in London invited Helene Hanff to promote the book After twenty years of invitations from the staff of Marks and Company Bookstore and their families Hanff was finally able to take her trip Her primary contact and friend Frank Doel had tragically died of a heart attack three years earlier but his widow Nora and her daughter Sheila maintained correspondence with Hanff inviting her to stay with them Hanff decided on a uaint hotel in the heart of London close to Charing Cross Road and immediately won over the hotel staff and became an instant friend to all the people she met in London In her five week stay in the city in addition to seeing Buckingham Palace The Tower and Windsor Castle Hanff became known as the duchess of Bloomsbury Street Writing down all her experiences in a journal one can only feel empathy for Hanff who would have loved to make her trip to London while Doel was still alive and Marks and Company still open for business She reveled in every moment of her vacation and was sad to return to New York preferring her time in her newly adopted cityHanff writes in a witty humorous style as she invites readers into her life once again If I found 84 Charing Cross Road to be a humorous intelligent blend I found The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street to be even so as I finally experienced Hanff's encounters with the people she only knew through letters during a twenty year period The experience of seeing the sites that she only learned about through literature became a humbling one for Hanff She breathed in the same air once lived by Shakespeare Donne Henry and others and admitted to not being as well read as some of her acuaintances because she would rather read one book fifty times and memorize it than fifty books one time Yet Hanff was a natural for London reveling in its sites its food and her new friends and acuaintances If it wasn't for the lack of funding I could see her remaining in the city indefinitely and becoming an ex patriot Thus being in London seeing 84 Charing Cross Road almost felt anticlimactic because the book store was no longer open and Hanff knew that after her experience came to an end that she most likely would never return to LondonAnother review for this book encouraged readers of 84 Charing Cross Road to have a copy of The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street on hand upon finishing the first book Readers would be eager to know if Hanff ever made it to London and what her experiences would be in the city of her dreams For a seuel Bloomsbury is full of Hanff's now familiar brand of humor and wit that makes it easy to see why she became an instant friend to all who met her in any encounter in her life Usually a writer for not so successful television show Charing Cross Road and Duchess of Bloomsbury Street were Hanff's only forays into books leaving me upset because I know I do not have any of her intimate writing to look forward to The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street left me with a happy taste in my mouth and I am glad I heeded another reviewer's advice to have it on hand upon completing Charing Cross Road4 stars 84 Charing Cross Road should have a warning sticker on the cover Be sure to have a copy of The Duchess Of Bloomsbury Street on hand BEFORE beginning this bookIf you've read 84 you already know it takes maybe an hour to finish including bathroom breaks and getting up to brew a cup of tea and maybe trying to make that recipe for Yorkshire pudding while you're at it You also know it's impossible to read 84 and not want to read of Helene Hanff's writing Certainly you'll be longing to know what happened to her next And oh that bittersweet ending – you'll want a little antidote on hand to chase away any possible bluesSo get yourself a copy of Duchess and find out what happens when – spoiler alert – Hanff finally gets to go to LondonShe writes another awesome book is what happens This one's a diary – okay it's based on the diary she kept during the course of her visit A little editing never hurt anyoneThis book's wonderful It's funny and fascinating and touching and engrossing just like 84 but richer in some ways because Hanff can give us all sorts of little details a structure like 84's doesn't leave room forShe's brilliantly insightful at times I don't know where I was I could find no name to the street I'm not even sure it was a street It was a kind of enclosed courtyard a cul de sac behind Clarence House and St James's Palace A footstep is loud and you stand without moving almost without breathing There is no reek of money here only the hallowed hush of privilegeAnd sometimes she's just her usual wry witty self Somewhere along the way I came upon a mews with a small sign on the entrance gate addressed to the passing world The sign orders flatlyCOMMIT NO NUISANCEThe you stare at that the territory it coversRead this book if you're a New Yorker I am so tired of being told what a terrible place New York is to live in by people who don't live thereor if you're addicted to reading and love to hear the confessions of another bookaholic I'm always so ashamed when I discover how well read other people are and how ignorant I am in comparison If you saw the long list of famous books and authors I've never read you wouldn't believe it My problem is that while other people are reading fifty books I'm reading one book fifty timesI can relate to that far too wellRead this book It's lovely it's lovable and it's less than 150 pages Just be sure to read 84 Charing Cross Road first This is Helene Hanff’s follow up to 84 Charing Cross Road and it is an account of her first visit to Britain in 1971 three years after Frank Doel’s death It is in daily diary form The visit combined some book promotion of 84 Charing Cross Road meeting Doel’s wife and daughters and a number of other friends and acuaintances As in the previous book Hanff’s personality and enthusiasm shine through Her delight in visiting historical sites where some of those she admires first trod is also obvious although she can be cutting about things that irritate her “Nothing infuriates me like those friendly folksy bank ads in magazines and on TV Every bank I ever walked into was about as folksy as a cobra”And this thought when walking in a park and greeting a dog with the owner close by” Please don’t do that” she said to me sharply “I’m trying to teach him good manners”I thought” A pity he can’t do the same for you”And a very perceptive remark about being taken to lunch at the Hilton“You look at the faces in the Hilton dining room and first you want to smack them and then you just feel sorry for them not a soul in the room looked happy”Hanff is great at the one liners although I did miss Frank Doel’s dry and reserved responses This is a delightful tourist’s account of London and its surrounds told with Hanff’s zest for life
