Lemony Snicket

“From eavesdropping and from reading other books.

“Writers are, pretty much thieves, stealing ideas from other people who didn’t have the foresight to write them down, and then from the people who did have the foresight to write them down.”

– Lemony Snicket
(from a CBBC interview, 2006)

It’s not known whether it’s the Lemony Snicket personae that answered or the author (real name: Daniel Handler).

Snicket, of course, wrote A Series of Unfortunate Events, chronicling the exploits of the Baudelaire children and despite the author’s warnings never to read these woeful pages, we go against caution and share in the grief, and brief joy, of the Baudelaires.

Since the end of The End, Snicket has released another book, this time a holiday fare, The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming: A Christmas Story.

Lemony Snicket is still at large.
