Stories of Hans Christian Andersen by Hans Christian Andersen
Book DescriptionOn the bicentennial of Hans Christian Andersen s birth, this collection takes Andersen out of the nursery and places him squarely in the literary pantheon. While Andersen s tales continue to seize the imagination with their singular blend of simplicity, eccentricity, and charm, English-language readers have until now had to content themselves with inaccurate retellings and inadequate translations. Diana Crone Frank, a Danish novelist and linguist, and Jeffrey Frank, a novelist and editor at the New Yorker , offer a much-needed modern translation. In this collection are twenty-two tales that best represent Andersen s literary legacy, including such classics as The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Duckling, Thumbelisa, and The Emperor s New Clothes, as well as largely unfamiliar stories like By the Outermost Sea. Illuminating notes clarify references in the tales. And in an introductory essay, the Franks explore the writer and his times, placing the enigmatic and often bizarre figure of Andersen among his literary contemporaries, such as Charles Dickens and Soren Kierkegaard, with whom he crossed paths; and they bring to life Andersen s fascinating relationship with the United States. Illustrated with the delicate and beautiful drawings that accompanied the original Danish publication, The Stories of Hans Christian Andersen will delight readers of all ages."

Marcel Dzama, Paperback (January 2017)
Marcel Dzama's prolific output as a draftsman has, in recent years, expanded to include works in many different media, and even a recent collaboration with artist Raymond Pettibon. This book closes with a conversation between Dzama and Peck, in which choreographer and artist discuss the nuances of their collaborative process.
Ice Virgin, Paperback (November 2016)
The longest of Andersen's novellas for adult readership. The relationship between a young Swiss hunter from a German-speaking upland and a wealthy miller's daughter from a comfortable francophone canton plays out a wealth of themes. In the terrifying Ice Virgin and her minions we glimpse fairytale; but this is a powerful story of the real world.
