Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket), 2021: “Poison for Breakfast”

Daniel Handler, author of “Poison for Breakfast” by Lemony Snicket, in conversation with host Richard Wolinsky.

Daniel Handler writes young adult/children’s books under the name “Lemony Snicket,” along with novels for adults under his own name. Lemony Snicket was narrator for the 13-book “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” and “wrote” several other books as well. “A Series of Unfortunate Events” was a not so successful film and a very successful Netflix TV series.

In this in-depth interview, he talks about how he came to write “Poison for Breakfast,” his love of noir, the origins of characters in “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” his early years as a writer, and how he handled the pandemic shutdown. Recorded at his home, this is the first Radio Wolinsky in eighteen months created as an in-person interview.
