About this deal

Add a pop of yellow to your bookshelf with this First Edition 1960 edition of Mrs Harris Goes To New York by Paul Gallico.

The way you;ve described Mrs Harris goes to New York as not being able to stand alone now makes sense as to why it;s together. Never in her life has Mrs Harris seen anything so beautiful and is completely and utterly enamoured. Charlady is perhaps the more respectful term to use when referring to a paid part-time worker who comes into a house or other building to clean it for a few hours of a day or week, as opposed to a maid, who usually lives as part of the household within the structure of domestic service. Luckily, coincidences again merge to bring the almost magical Mrs Harris’s plans to glorious fruition, though not without some glorious glitches here and there.The term dates as far back as the late 16th century and is derived from an old medieval word 'chare' meaning an odd job or task. Innocuous story from the late ‘50s that has me pondering the difference between characters vs caricatures in writing.

doesn't she deserve it just like we wish we could all have that much stamina, faith and recognition? Harris, is a middle-aged char-woman in London, but her innate energy, kindness, and curiosity get her into one adventure (or mishap) after another. I love her trip to Paris and was lucky enough to find a first edition – even if it is a beat-up ex-library copy.I can never have enough of her' Justine Picardie'It is almost impossible not to succumb to Gallico's spell' Times Literary SupplementMrs Harris is a salt-of-the-earth London charlady who cheerfully cleans the houses of the rich.
