‘Dear Slightly Foxed, Many thanks for No. 48 and 84, Charing Cross Road. Ms Hanff has lost none of her exuberant charm over the years and I am working my way through the book with great delight. I too remember when she first appeared in that air-mail style cover – I still have it. But to have an SF hardback adds extra pleasure.
How good to encounter Gavin Maxwell again – him, also, I remember borrowing and reading all those years ago.
With best wishes for Christmas and 2016.’ D. Jennings, Manchester
