An East Village Stroll with Nicole Krauss
Novelist Nicole Krauss made an impact with her acclaimed first novel Man Walks into a Room. On the eve of the release of her second novel, The History of Love, she talks to New York Magazine about the book, her childhood (Westbury, Long Island), reading writer's biographies (irrelevant). Krauss refuses to talk about her much lauded husband, the novelist Jonathan Safran Foer (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close), or to address similarities in both their latest novels, which early viewers have remarked upon, including a mix of old and young narrators and a blue vase that appears in both books. “These comparisons are laughable,” says Krauss, insisting the couple didn’t read each other’s proofs until the very end. “People find what they’re looking for,” she says.
