Sneak Peek Of Lemony Snicket’s Latest Book, ‘Who Could that be at This Hour?’

EW has posted a the first chapter from Lemony Snicket’s latest novel Who Could that be at This Hour?

He starts by asking questions that shouldn’t have been on his mind. Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn’t be read. This is the first volume.

I was almost thirteen and I was wrong. I was wrong about all of it. I should have asked the question, “Why would someone say something was stolen when it was never theirs to begin with?” Instead I asked the wrong question — four wrong questions, more or less. This is the account of the first. (Read the rest here)
