Daniel Handler recommends
The Bears' Famous Invasion Of Sicily (1947)
Dino Buzzati
"The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily is one of the noblest books I know. At once a tragic inquiry and a philosophical history, the novel examines ambition, violence, and revenge in the voice of an adult explaining things to children--a voice that is simultaneously wise, wry, and wrong. Little wonder that it is not only my favorite book, but Lemony Snicket's as well."
Be Here to Love Me at the End of the World (2022)
Sasha Fletcher
"Breathless distraction, omnipresent dread and sudden! glorious! joy! This is a work of far-flung imagination and simultaneously the most realistic novel of our times."
