Daniel Handler On Ya Literature

Daniel Handler, interviewed by the Boston Globe, says he does not know what young adult literature is...

I'm not really sure I understand what young adult literature is. A few years ago, I was on the committee for the National Book Award for children's literature and most of what we read was marked as YA and it really had nothing in common, as far as I could tell, except that I was reading it all. Though I was interested in a story about people in high school and YA seems to be that distinction. I think that there's actually quite a bit of speculation and confusion as to who reads books that are set in high school.
