We Are Pirates preview #1.

“We Are Pirates will dazzle, disturb, and delight you. It might even do things to you that don’t start with the letter D, like remind you what it’s like to be young, or convince you that Daniel Handler can do anything.” ––Jess Walter, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Ruins

“Honest and funny, dark and painful, We Are Pirates reads like the result of a nightmarish mating experiment between Joseph Heller and Captain Jack Sparrow. It’s the strangest, most brilliant offering yet from the mind behind Lemony Snicket.” ––Neil Gaiman

"Daniel Handler turns whimsy into wisdom and the fantastic into the great. He is, of course, a genius." –– Lorrie Moore

One of the most troublesome things in life is that what you do or do not want has very little to do with what does or does not happen. You might want to become the sort of author who works calmly at home, for example, but something could happen that would lead you to become the sort of author who works frantically in the homes of other people, often without their knowledge. You might want to marry someone you love very much, but something could happen that would prevent the two of you from ever seeing one another again.

"Daniel Handler, a.k.a. children’s author Lemony Snicket, is launching “The Lemony Snicket Prize for Noble Librarians Faced With Adversity.” In a proposal for the American Library Association, Snicket wrote: “It is of the opinion of Lemony Snicket, author, reader, and alleged malcontent, that librarians have suffered enough. Therefore he is establishing an annual prize honoring a librarian who has faced adversity with integrity and dignity intact. The prize will be a generous amount of cash from Mr. Snicket’s disreputable gains, along with an odd, symbolic object from his private stash, and a certificate, which may or may not be suitable for framing. It is Mr. Snicket’s hope, and the ALA’s, that the Snicket Prize will remind readers everywhere of the joyous importance of librarians and the trouble that is all too frequently unleashed upon them.” In a press release, he added that “this seems like a better way to channel money to librarians than my previous strategy, which was incurring exorbitant late fees.”"

She had the look in her eye when you kick and kick at the door and it doesn’t open, when you write a boy letters and letters and he never loves you, not ‘til the day he dies. Not even then.
