"Celebrity is a kind of capital. You have to use it wisely, and you can overspend it easily. So I use it carefully, when I can, for just the right thing." - Julia Louis-Dreyfus at an interview with Nancy Pelosi for the New York Times

Literature Meme- 2/5 Tropes
Named for Lemony Snicket (whose Series of Unfortunate Events go so far as to warn readers away from them by promising tales of unrelieved misery), the narrator in this trope displays more personality than one would come to expect from a third person viewpoint. They have very definite opinions on the action and aren’t afraid to air them, nor do they pass up the chance to make a joke at a character’s expense. Not typically involved in the action themselves (although they can be), this bit of postmodernism makes you think long and hard about just who is telling the story and why- unless they just up and tell you themselves.
But that would ruin the fun. Wouldn’t it, dear readers?
Examples: The Princess Bride by William Goldman, nearly any Discworld novel by Terry Pratchett, Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, For the Emperor by Sandy Mitchell.
