Daniel Handler’s Last 10 Relationships, 6 Words at a Time

Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket, is hooked on six. Last year, when a Canadian radio station asked him to talk about the six-word memoir phenomenon (in our first book, his six-word memoir, written just as he was wrapping up his book series, is: “What? Lemony Snicket? Lemony Snicket? What?”), he wrote ten six-word memoirs on love for the occasion. We recently asked Daniel to read them all at a six-word memoir event/slam in San Francisco. Here he is:

    Dear Daniel,

    I think ‘ten by six’ would make a good title for a chapter of this story. Last ten relationship? Whew

    If I were you, I’d roll some stock over to Hershey Food Corp (HSY). This way, you’d at least get something back for all those Valentine Days.

    Its been fun watching you all have fun.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!
