Snicket as a character[change | change source]
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.
