A nice selection of thoughts and anecdotes. It's always interesting to hear this kind of thing from Handler. It seems very appropriate that ASOUE was written to the sound of an unfinished piece of music, particularly one with 'Mystery' in the title.
Other than that, there's the "I'm working on a novel full of tricky sexual drama" part, which is interesting news! Being Daniel Handler, he really might just as effectively have said he was working on a novel and left it at that, but that alone is something I didn't know. I'm excited about it, since it's the first Handler novel I get to look forward to having read all of his previous ones.

Wow the stuff about comparing pop to Shostakovich (fourth paragraph) is pretty much a re-arranged version of how he phrased the same sentiment at an appearance at Google to promote TCID back in 2009. Such memories.
Happy to see it's still being performed, good for you London.
"Tricky sexual drama" ok then. That's slightly more info than we've had until now.
tk: hey i actually did leave 667 bookmarks in ASOUE books in bookshops! man i forgot about that. good times.

Stay-at-homet: Just updated my profile to express my hopes that everyone stays home and safe. I tried to give my avatar a mask, but it ended up looking more like Patrick from Spongebob in overalls.

Jean Lúcio: It was great for me. I also put a mask on my Avatar.

Jean Lúcio: Why didn't anyone warn me that I had a translation error in the title of my fanfic?

Jean Lúcio: It should be Silence Knot, not silent Knot ...

Jean Lúcio: Thanks to everyone who read my Fanfic Untie My Silence Knot. I finally finished it.

Sherry Ann: Jean Lucio, I thought the title of the TBL sonnet was "My Silent Knot" for years. It sounds more natural than having those two nouns together. And congratulations on finishing your fanfic!

Jean Lúcio: Thanks! Creating this fanfic at this moment stirred many of my feelings, and I believe that this fanfic reflected my state of mind at this time.
