Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography

Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography Cover

 

 

Author's Note

A note from Daniel Handler

Dear Reader,

As the official representative of Lemony Snicket in all legal, literary, and social matters, I am often asked difficult questions, even when I am in a hurry. Recently, the most common questions have been the following:

  1. Will you please get out of my way?
  2. Where did Lemony Snicket's Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography come from?
The replies to both of these questions are very long stories, so there is only room here to answer one of them. The origins of the Unauthorized Autobiography are somewhat cryptic — a word which here means "enigmatic" — but the story begins with a parcel of papers, scribbled notes, and photographs that were found at the offices of the people who published this book.

No one knows where this parcel of papers, scribbled notes, and photographs originated. However, after careful consideration, we have reached the following conclusions:

  1. This book does not appear to be a forgery, which is not to say that the story is true — only that it is accurate.
  2. That this book comes from Mr. Snicket is unquestionable, which is not to say that some do not question it.

With all due respect
Daniel Handler

There's not much I want to say about this book (in fear that I will give anything away) but for those of you who are noble enough and find being well-read to be a good sign, then this is a book to read whenever you have a chance to (meaning that this is a good book to read to find out about *Volunteers *For *Dignity).

"Review" by , "A certain maniacal glee went into the creation of this archly humorous volume. Beginning with the suggestion on the front flap of the dust jacket to disguise its dangerous contents (Make use of this book's reversible jacket immediately), readers will know they're in possession of something deliciously left of normal."
"Synopsis" by , In anticipation of the forthcoming release of The Slippery Slope (A Series of Unfortunate Events Book the Tenth) don't miss this depressing opportunity to warn even more readers off Lemony Snicket.

Finally, here is the definitive – and only – book for anyone interested in learning more about the alarmingly elusive author.

Ages 10+

"Synopsis" by , Millions of readers of the bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events have been asking the same questions: Who is Lemony Snicket? Why has his face never been captured on film? Why is he so obsessed with three unlucky orphans and a woman named Beatrice? Finally, here is the definitive--and only--book for anyone interested in learning more about the alarmingly elusive author. Photos.
