ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Born in Philadelphia in 1916,
HELENE HANFF
spent much of her life as a struggling screenwriter in New York City. But it was her 1970 memoir,
84, Charing Cross Road
, that propelled her to fame and made possible the trip to London that inspired
The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street.
She never married, and died in New York in 1997.
