Companion to A Series of Unfortunate Events

Okay, mentally disconnect the term “biography” from this book immediately, please. This is absolutely not an actual autobiography of Lemony Snicket; it’s more like an extension of his Series of Unfortunate Events and a forerunner to his All the Wrong Questions series. The author takes a collection of letters, photographs, diary entries, newspaper clippings, etc. and uses them to expand on a variety of topics that are very generally broached in his earlier books. The results are quite amusing and engaging, at least for someone who has already ready read A Series of Unfortunate Events. If you haven’t, this book will probably seem like utter nonsense. Therefore, I recommend that you first read A Series of Unfortunate Events, then pick up The Unauthorized Autobiography for some intriguing back-story.
