In a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organization nobody knows about. He started 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 Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn’t be read.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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A Pink Panther-esque page turner that marks the return of eccentric narrator Lemony Snicket…The Snicket style of storytelling is exceptionally literary and entirely singular. Characterized by linguistic playfulness and an appreciation for the archaic, Who Could That Be at This Hour? is frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious.” Los Angeles Times
“A very bookish book, full of reverence for the power of literature…a little masterpiece of surreal mischief, teasing us, playing with our expectations, leaving us amused.” Guardian (London)
“A contagious kinetic energy, as if it were written on a steady diet of espresso and sugar. The sophisticated novel demands to be read twice: once for the laughs and the second time for the clues…Snicket challenges even as he entertains.” Boston Globe
“Full of Snicket’s trademark droll humor and maddeningly open-ended, this will have readers clamoring for volume two.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
