Helene Hanff is a New Yorker who loves books but cannot afford expensive ones.

Pink Floyd the wall by Alan Parker( visu )
8 editions published between 1989 and 2005 in English and held by 769 libraries worldwide
"The story of the wall" is told simply with the music of Pink Floyd, images and natural effects. There is no conventional dialogue to progress the narrative. The story is about Pink, a rock and roll performer, who sits locked in a hotel room, somewhere in Los Angeles. Too many shows, too much dope, too much applause, a burned out case. On the TV, an all too familiar war film flickers on the screen. We shuffle time and place, reality and nightmare as we venture into Pink's painful memories, each one a "brick" in the wall he has gradually built around his feelings

13 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 513 libraries worldwide
A wonderful meditation on the creation of art, Academy Award-winning "Topsy-Turvy" catches Gilbert and Sullivan, the famed playwright-composers, at a crossroads in their illustrious careers. Having scored numerous hits (like "The Pirates of Penzance" and "HMS Pinafore"), they've reached a creative dry spot with their latest project. All seems lost when thanks to his wife's insistence, Gilbert attends a Japanese exposition in London. Soon, "The Mikado" is born. An antic comedy and riveting drama from Oscar-nominated director Mike Leigh, "Topsy-Turvy" was hailed by many critics as the Best Film of 1999. A delight!
