Hans Christian Andersen : a new life by Jens Andersen( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 1,161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Delving deeply into archives and correspondence, Jens Andersen sheds new light on Hans Christian Andersen's writings - the 156 published fairy tales, as well as the novels, short stories, dramas, poetry, and non-fiction - and on the writer whose own life had many aspects of the fairytale. As did some of the memorable characters he created, Andersen grew up in miserable and impoverished circumstances and as an adult he took steps to keep what he called his "common" background well hidden, propagating myths about his life and family, partially to create a romantic distance from his true background. In this new biography, Jens Andersen uncovers much about this man that has never been revealed before."--Jacket
Astrid Lindgren : the woman behind Pippi Longstocking by Jens Andersen( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first English-language biography of Astrid Lindgren provides a moving and revealing portrait of the beloved Scandinavian literary icon whose adventures of Pippi Longstocking have influenced generations of young readers all over the world. Lindgren's sometimes turbulent life as an unwed teenage mother, outspoken advocate for the rights of women and children, and celebrated editor and author is chronicled in fascinating detail by Jens Andersen, one of Denmark's most popular biographers. Based on extensive research and access to primary sources and letters, this highly readable account describes Lindgren's battles with depression and her personal struggles through war, poverty, motherhood, and fame. Andersen examines the writer's oeuvre as well to uncover the secrets to the books' universal appeal and why they have resonated so strongly with young readers for more than seventy years."--Jacket

Vor 70 Jahren begann Astrid Lindgrens außerordentliche Karriere als Schriftstellerin.

Jens Andersen blickt in seiner preisgekrönten Biografie hinter die Fassade des weltweiten Erfolgs und erzählt ihr Leben einfühlsam und respektvoll neu

I åtte kapitler føres leseren heleveien rundt om fenomenet Tove Ditlevsen (1917-1976) og stifter bekjentskap med nye og spennende sider ved en av dansk litteraturs mest leste og elskedeforfattere. Det er historien om et hensynsløst ærlig kvinne- og forfatterliv, derliv og verk var nært forbundet, og der litteratur og ekteskap fulgtes ad i en fascinerende synkronisitet. Dette portrettet av Tove Ditlevsen viser hennes mange ansikter. På den ene siden en kvinne med lengsel etter trygghet i moderskap og familie, på den andre siden kunstner med en ubendig lyst til å realisere seg selv. Illustrert (forhåndsomtale)
