(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.

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.
