New Lemony Snicket Series

A Series of Unforunate Events author Lemony Snicket is writing an autobiography of his childhood

A 'leaked email' from the elusive author confirms that the first of a new four-part series about Snicket's childhood will be released in October.

Snicket 'accidentally' announced the title and sale date of All the Wrong Questions, which is based on his childhood and illustrated by the artist Seth. Drawing on events that took place during a period of his youth spent in a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, Snicket chronicles his experiences as an apprentice in an organisation nobody knows about. While there, he began to ask a series of questions—wrong questions that should not have been on his mind. "Who Could That Be at This Hour?" is the first volume in the series.

"These books are questionable and contain questions," Snicket revealed. "I, for one, question why anyone would be interested in reading them.”   

A Series of Unfortunate Events has sold more than 60 million copies worldwide and Jim Carey starred in the film adaptation in 2004.
