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."
Praying Drunk (2014)
Kyle Minor
"I finished this book with my heart pounding and grateful, my coffee cold and my smile wide and crying like a baby."
