        With Fun Home and Caroline, Or Change both achieving critical acclaim for their London runs, this UK premiere of Violet, directed by Shuntaro Fulita, is the third in a hat trick of Jeanine Tesori musicals to arrive in the capital in under a year. With book and lyrics by Brian Crawley, and based on ‘The Ugliest Pilgrim’ by Doris Betts, Violet, is one of those naturally 4/5.   This book beautifully demonstrates the power of correspondence and how two people can connect, solely by the written word. Heartwarming, funny, sad, all rolled in one. I went on to read other books by Hanff where she describes her trips to London. After reading her books, I too went on a pilgrimage to 84, Charing Cross Road/5().

        'Pilgrimage to El-Medinah and Meccah' is one of the great travel classics along with Doughty's 'Arabia Deserta.' He was fluent in Arabic (and in more than 20 other languages!) and disguised himself as a Moslem in order to penetrate, at the risk of his life, the holiest of Islamic shrines, forbidden to non-Moslems. 84, Charing Cross Road is a charming book, and as I was reading, my fellow bus and metro passengers may have been wondering why I was smiling so much. Actually, my volume has two parts: The first is 84, Charing Cross Road and the second is The Duchess of Bloombury Street/5.

      I am reading Helene Hanff’s The Duchess of Bloomsbury, a sequel to 84 Charing Cross Road, the story of her year correspondence with the buyer of an antiquarian bookstore. Hanff, an autodidact, was unable to find the books she needed in . There is a series of rituals involved, the best known of which is walking round the kaaba (a large cubic structure) in the al-Masjid al-Haram mosque seven times. Other Islamic pilgrimage sites include the prophet Muhammed’s tomb in Medina, Saudi Arabia and the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel. The latter is where Muhammed is believed to have.
