Literary Power Couple Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss Split

Legally, amicably and under the radar, the Kim and Kanye of Jewish American novelists separated about a year ago.

Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss, once described by New York Magazine as "the too-successful-to-stomach physical embodiment of literary Brooklyn," have been legally – and amicably – separated for a year,

Foer, author of "Everything is Illuminated" and "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," moved out of the couple's Park Slope home late last year and bought a place in another Brooklyn neighborhood. Krauss, whose most recent novel was "Great House," recently checked out of the Park Slope house and is living near Foer, according to Tuesday's Post.

The pair, who married in 2004, "have chosen to live in close proximity in order to raise their children," said a Krauss-Foer spokesman. 

Around the time Foer moved out, he and Krauss put their house up for sale for $14.5 million, which is a sign that some people are still reading. The home didn't sell, but instead of brooding about it like brooding Brooklyn writers, they're relisting it with a different real estate agent.
