About once per book, Snicket provides the reader with glimpses of his life. He says that he:

  • plays the accordion very badly
  • was chased by an angry mob
  • had an unhappy love affair with a woman called Beatrice, who even wrote a book (200 pages) explaining why it was impossible for her to marry him
  • attended a costume ball dressed as a bullfighter, to gain access to his beloved Beatrice, who was dressed as a dragonfly

He also dedicated his life to the Baudelaire orphans story.
