9780060007195: Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorised Biography (A Series of Unfortunate Events)

Finally, the definitive - and only - book for anyone interested in learning more about the alarmingly elusive author. Here is a collection of evidence - writings, annotated photographs, mysterious diagrams, and several disorientating maps, accompanied by captions, an introduction, and an extensive index. Together, these pieces will shed light on a life that until now has been unfortunately shrouded in darkness, and will finally answer the questions on everyone's mind: what do we really know about Lemony Snicket? And why is he so interested in the lives of the Baudelaire orphans?

Review:

Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography is bizarre, abstruse ("a word which here means 'cryptic'"), and truly entertaining. Would you expect anything less from the mystery man behind A Series of Unfortunate Events ( The Bad Beginning, The Ersatz Elevator and so on.)? Virtually every detail of the volume has Snicket's indelible mark, from the book jacket to the copyright page text to the intentionally blurry and bewildering black-and-white photographs appearing throughout. An apparently false obituary for Lemony Snicket sets the stage for what turns into a series of mind-boggling bundles of coded information passed from hand to hand, gleaned from newspapers blowing through streets, pages from a journal addressed to "Dear Dairy", blueprints of ships, minutes from secret meetings, and a lot of edited and disputed commentary. The question is, do we finally discover the meaning of VFD? You know you're not going to get a straight answer. But any fan of Snicket will have a lot of fun trying. (ages 9 and older) -- Emilie Coulter, Amazon.com
