Reflecting her combination of dry humor and observation, this is an omnibus edition of the American Helene Hanff's five autobiographical books. "Underfoot in Show Business" is the zany memoir of her playwriting apprenticeship, when she was young and penniless, yet determined to have fun. "84 Charing Cross Road", her most acclaimed work, is the account of her 20-year exchange of correspondence with a London antiquarian bookshop. "The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street" is the diary of her first journey to London. "Apple of My Eye" is her eccentric view of life in New York. And "Q's Legacy" is a tribute to Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, who strongly influenced her tastes.
