Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography

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

"Review" by , "Admirers of the saddening yet very important work that Mr. Snicket has done in his A Series of Unfortunate Events books have long been concerned about the tragic and elusive author. This book will answer some of their questions, although perhaps they would rather not know."
"Review" by , "A certain maniacal glee went into the creation of this archly humorous volume....[R]eaders will know they're in possession of something deliciously left of normal."
"Review" by , "Without the customary characters and plot to keep the momentum going, some readers will bog down before finishing the book. Only for devoted Snicket fans...but, of course, libraries are full of devoted Snicket fans."
"Review" by , "Snicket fans will clamor for this intriguing parody of an autobiography/mystery."
"Review" by , "With all of its surprising twists and turns, this book feels like a roller coaster ride and leaves the reader a bit breathless and wanting more at the end."
