Our golden writing couple
Two nice interview pieces with Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss. The Foer piece reveals a traumatic childhood incident, which caused the 9-year-old Foer "a nervous breakdown that lasted almost 3 years." These two might just go down as our first First Literary Couple. We've had these couples in theater, why not in literature? They could give the whole scribbling business a needed shot of glamor. And imagine their children: talk about born writers.
