Lemony Snicket was born before you were, and is likely to
die before you as well. His family has roots in a part of the country which is
now underwater, and his childhood was spent in the relative splendor of the
Snicket Villa which has since become a factory, a fortress and a pharmacy and
is now, alas, someone else's villa.Lemony Snicket claims he was
nowhere near the scene of the crime. He is the author of several other
unpleasant stories, including those in the bestselling A Series of Unfortunate
Events and The Lump of Coal.
