Daniel Handler is the author of the novels The Basic Eight, Watch Your Mouth, Adverbs and, most recently, the Michael J. Printz Honor-winning Why We Broke Up, a collaboration with noted illustrator Maira Kalman. He also worked with Kalman on the book Girls Standing on Lawns and Hurry Up and Wait (May 2015).
The author, most recently, of the novel “We Are Pirates” (and, as Lemony Snicket, numerous children’s books) likes to read Miss Manners. “She’s an extremely useful philosopher, and I consult her frequently, in order to behave better.”
Toronto High Tea - Lobby Lounge is a destination where art and architecture are emphasised. Guests find themselves in the 90-seat Lobby Lounge – an urban living room – where natural light streams through two storey windows that highlight large paintings, sculptures and an Italian handcrafted Fazioli piano set amid contemporary dove-grey leather sofas and chairs. Lobby Lounge is considered by many as Toronto’s best Lounge experience.
“Hurrying and delaying are alike ways of trying to resist the present,” Alan Watts observed in his magnificent meditation on the art of timing half a century before our paradoxical modern mecca of ever-multiplying procrastination options amid a Productivity Rush in which we’re mining every last frontier of sanity and stillness for the tiniest nugget of precious efficiency.
Daniel Handler's new novel for adults is the highly-anticipated We Are Pirates, which Bloomsbury published in February, and Neil Gaiman says is, "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."
Daniel Handler is the author of the bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events (under the pen name of Lemony Snicket), a collection of books for children, and three books for adults: Basic Eight (based on a true story of a teenaged girl who commits murder), Watch Your Mouth (a melodramatic satire of family life), and Adverbs, due out this year.
