A Bitter Pill To Swallow
A new Lemony Snicket book? Despite my mother's distaste for the his work (read beyond the first book, mom!), I am a devoted fan of the man's talents. The thought that he may have a new book ah-coming just makes my tiny heart go pitter-pat. Thus it is, thus it evermore shall be:
Life is a turbulent journey, fraught with confusion, heartbreak, and inconvenience. Unfortunately, this book will not help.I got two words for you: Graduation Present. Forget giving you darling niece or nephew Oh, the Places You'll Go, Winnie-the-Pooh, or other "meaningful" works of kidlit. Give the little buggers this. It'll toughen their hides and lightly salt their tender souls.
Instead, this book of wit and wisdom offers a selection of alarming but inescapable truths from the work of Lemony Snicket, along with selections from his unpublished papers and remarks he has made at dinner parties and anarchist riots.
