DanielHandler2Yep, that’s a picture of Daniel Handler AKA Lemony Snicket, since we got to do a phoner with him last week (on Friday the 13th, naturally). We’re big fans of Handler, not just for the mega-selling travails of the Baudelaire orphans, but also for his terrific “adult” novels like Adverbs and the brand new We Are Pirates. Plus he’s the accordionist in The Magnetic Fields when they need someone to man the squeezebox, and how cool is that. What’s more, we got Santa Barbara’s Poet Laureate Chryss Yost to help out with the interview, so we could be all literary and stuff.
