In her spirited, witty and vastly entertaining memoir, Helene Hanff recalls her ingenuous attempts to crash Broadway in the early forties as one of "the other 999." Naive, nearsighted, frequently penniless but hopelessly stage-struck, she found her life governed by Flanagan's Law: "No matter what happens to you, it's unexpected."

Together with her best friend Maxine, an aspiring actress consigned to playing the comedy-ingňue in plays that regularly folded after five performances, she cultivated the "delicate, illegal art of getting everything for nothing"-from free seats to every Broadway show and neighborhood movie and borrowed outfits from Saks to voice lessons for Maxine and Greek lessons for Helene.
