This is a 1970 book about the twenty-year correspondence between the author and the chief buyer of Marks & Co, antiquarian booksellers located on a street in central London that was – at the time – world renown as the place to shop for new and old books. Foyles® is the most famous bookstore on this street. My wife, Nancy, and I spent many hours searching for books on this street in the 80s and 90s.
Today 84 Charing Cross Road is a Subway®. Nearby are a TJMaxx® and Chipotle®. There are very few book stores anymore. Rents are the primary cause of this shift.
