Shout out to Carl Nielsen

I've written a column published in today's Times Herald. It's a nothing, puff piece on Read Across America and the wonderfulness of books, but I did manage to mention the two little books by Carl Nielsen I've been reading. They were both finds. I stumbled across "My Childhood" many years ago at a Barnes and Noble or a Border's. (I always got them confused.) It was like $17 for a tiny paperback, but I paid it because I knew I would never come across it again. And I was right. It's in English, of course, but I suspect it is not sold in English speaking countries. I have the feeling it’s available only at the gift shops at whatever Carl Nielsen tourist spots there are in Denmark.
