Handler In the Movie Biz
Looks like Daniel Handler, he of the Snicketed Lemony, has actually up and sold the film rights to his recent adult novel Adverbs. No one's saying how much he's getting for the deal. I'm sure he really needs the money though. Poor penniless Daniel Handler.
Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but Handler has never successfully wowed the adult literature market like has the children's, right? He gets the occasional starred review in Publisher's Weekly, but no one has ever given him the praise he (justly) receives when he sits down to write for small fry. Has anyone actually read one of his adult novels? Was it worthwhile?
