(Newser) – Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss, the couple once described as "the too-successful-to-stomach physical embodiment of literary Brooklyn," split up about a year ago, their rep confirms. The couple, married in 2004, is now legally separated. Foer bought a Brooklyn brownstone about eight months ago and they put their Park Slope home on the market for $14.5 million last October; Krauss is living near Foer so that they can raise their kids together, a rep tells Page Six, calling the split amicable. Guess this means they shouldn't have been included on the Huffington Post's April list of "kickass literary power couples" ... which did specifically mention how private they are.

Maybe all that power went to their heads? Powerful, maybe, but clearly they're not successful. Never hoid of da bums and I do read quite a bit of modern literature.

Oh yummy, I hope it goes viral. (that's terrible, I know. besides I don't have a shot w/ the Brooklyn author I'm thinking of anyway.)
