As we invoke the format of a classic rock radio station, this week we’re doing our own “Countdown to Valentine’s Day,” featuring some of the best memoir moments about love in the world of SMITH. A year ago, in one of the most memorable evenings in three years of touring, 100+ people gathered at San Francisco’s Books, Inc for a night of “Six-Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak,” timed with the release of that book (which either alone for someone you’re “in-like” with or perhaps bundled with some chocolates or silk pajamas for a longer engagement, makes quite a fine Valentine’s Day present). Here’s a short video of Handler ruling the crowd with one six-word memoir for each of his past 10 relationships. Nobody does it better.
