A couple of years ago I blogged about my obsession with writer couples: Zadie Smith and Nick Laird, Vendela Vida and Dave Eggers, Nicole Krauss and Jonathan Safran Foer. Click here for a refresher. Jonathan Safran Foer you know, likely from Everything Is Illuminated. Have you read Krauss’s The History Of Love? It’s a book I read once a year. I last wrote about it here in a post about Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. Who are still together. But Krauss and Safran Foer are not. They are literary elite and they lived in Brooklyn and sold their townhouse for almost $15 million and they broke up last year. And at the time, Duana and I sent emails back and forth to each other like they were Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner and nobody else cared.

You might care now because according to US Weekly – on a roll this week, clearly – Jonathan Safran Foer is now dating Michelle Williams. Check out how the magazine’s source describes it. This is HILARIOUS:

“They knew each other through mutual friends. I’m not surprised that Michelle is attracted to him. She loves books. She reads almost every day!”

I love that “she reads almost every day” is delivered like “she goes skydiving every day!” Maybe the source doesn’t know too many people who read almost every day?

Apparently it’s serious and “with Jonathan, Michelle looks finally at peace and genuinely happy”.

She’ll be left in peace with this too, I think. And that’s how she likes it. This is not a Hollywood romance. Not a relationship built for the tabloids.
