A Series of Fortunate Links

I'm not a huge fan of the Lemony Snicket books (to me they're basically B-grade Edward Gorey) but I'm amused to hear Daniel Handler, their creator, posit that Lemony Snicket is Jewish. The fact that Handler apparently plays the accordion at his readings also endears him to me. I'm still not sure I'll shell out to see the upcoming movie, but if he ever comes this way on book tour, I might just have to go hear him. Wonder if he plays Israeli folk tunes? I've always thought Yerushalayim Shel Zahav would sound great on accordion...
