There are three Hans Christian Andersen biographies on the market: by Alison Prince (1998), Jackie . The book lays to rest the image of Andersen created by Danny Kaye in the (albiet interesting) misleading musical version of Hans Christian's life.

There are three Hans Christian Andersen biographies on the market: by Alison Prince (1998), Jackie Wullschlager (2000), and Jens Andersen (no relation - 2004). The later is the weakest, because the author is hesitant to reveal too much about Andersen's personal life. The book chronicles the master storyteller's incredible ambition and drive to make something of himself, despite his poverty-stricten background, and thoroughly examines the demons (both physical and psychological) that encompassed his life.

Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense, Denmark, on the April 2, 1805. He was the son of a sickly young shoemaker of twenty-two and his several years older wife. The whole family lived and slept in one little room. Hans Christian showed imagination early, which was fostered by the indulgence of his parents and by his mother’s superstition. In 1816, the shoemaker died and the child was left entirely to his own devices.
