Searching for: "Andersen"

  • Hans Christian Andersen

    Brought to life by Academy Award®-winning actor F. Murray Abraham and an ensemble cast of narrators, and featuring original music by Michael Bacon, this collection contains Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved fairy tales, as well as a selection of lesser-known favorites.   Unlike the Brothers Grimm, who collected and retold folklore and fairy tales, Hans Christian Andersen adopted the most ancient literary forms and distilled them into a genre that was uniquely his own.

They are like no others written before or since.  Recognizing the literary merit of...read more

America was founded by wishful dreamers, magical thinkers, and true believers, by hucksters and...read more

    Brought to you by Penguin. How an elite cabal rewrote the American dream for their gain - and left the rest of world behind. Evil Geniuses is the secret history of how, over the last half century, from even before Ronald Reagan through Donald Trump, America has sharply swerved away from its dream of progress for the many to a system of unfettered profit and self-interest for the few.

Largely out of sight,...read more
