On Friday, I picked up a copy of Jonathan Safran Foer’s book, “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.”
As always, the first thing I did was look at his dedication page. I’m sentimental that way.
He wrote: “For Nicole, My Idea of Beautiful.”
Hmm, I wondered, who is this beautiful Nicole?
On Saturday, I stopped in the bookstore to pick up a couple magazines.
I spotted a copy of Nicole Krauss’ “The History of Love.”
I started to flip through the pages. It occurred to me: Is it possible Krause is The Nicole.
The answer was on her dedication page:
“For Jonathan, my life.”
Maybe everyone in the world knows that they’re married, but I guess it was new to me.
So I wanted to tell you…
