Colin Meloy Meets Lemony Snicket - Portland Mercury

So how do you and Colin know each other?

Carson [Ellis, Meloy's girlfriend] and I share an editor. And Carson is illustrating the new Lemony Snicket book. So we have a dense web of connections. Yeah, it sounds like we know each other a lot better than we do.

What's the new Lemony Snicket book about?

It's called The Composer Is Dead. And it's a piece for a narrator and orchestra, like "Peter and the Wolf," which I did with composer Nathaniel Stookey. We've performed with a few orchestras, and now there's going to be a book with a CD in the back.

Carson Ellis also illustrated the Mysterious Benedict Society, which I should read soon. Website.
