As he did so brilliantly with A Serious of Unfortunate Events*, Mr. Lemony Snicket is teasing us by giving us small bits of information about his new series, coming out this fall from Little Brown. For those who weren’t following the previous series in real-time, Mr. Snicket not only wrote wonderfully clever and witty books about the very sad Baudelaire children, but also did some absolutely brilliant promotion between books. There were websites with daily clues, wonderful author events (where Mr. Snicket would suddenly be indisposed requiring one Mr. Daniel Handler to fill in and often including an accordion), and various other delightful diversions.
The new series, All the Wrong Questions, purports to be autobiographical and about the elusive writer’s childhood. The first volume Who Could That Be at This Hour? will be out October 23rd. Can’t wait!
