Hans Christian Anderson

I’m back after a week off – and today I bring you Danish author Hans Christian Anderson.  Anderson is most famous for his fairy tales “The Snow Queen”. “The Little Mermaid”, “The Ugly Ducking”, and others.

He visited Charles Dikens once in England and overstayed his welcome – despite constant hints to leave, Anderson freeloaded for five weeks! Dickens’ daughter said of Andersen, “He was a bony bore, and stayed on and on.”

Anderson was dyslexic, and bisexual.
