The New York Times > Movies > Lemony Snicket's Down and Dirty Indie

he writer Daniel Handler, a k a Lemony Snicket, was in New York this week promoting two new works. One is "The Grim Grotto," the 11th installment of his hugely successful "Series of Unfortunate Events." These gothic children's books, following the star-crossed Baudelaire orphans through fantastical misadventures, have sold about 25 million copies in the last five years and won approval from grown-ups for their shrewd storytelling and clever wordplay. The other is "Rick," also grim, but strictly for adults. An independent movie written by Mr. Handler, it is unsparing in language and sexuality.

Excellent New York Times feature on Daniel Handler.
