Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket), in conversation with host Richard Wolinsky.
Daniel Handler discusses his latest novel, “Bottle Grove,” set in San Francisco, along with his earlier novel, “All The Dirty Parts.” He also talks in depth about the Netflix three-season series of Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” as well as his work in theatre and how his life has changed with success.
“Bottle Grove” deals with the intricacies of marriage, along with how San Francisco has changed in recent years due to the influx of the tech world. “All The Dirty Parts” dissects what life is like for a horny teen-aged boy in a way that few books have attempted. “A Series of Unfortunate Events” is about the terrible things that befall the poor Baudelaire orphans, mostly due to the nefarious schemes of Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris).
