Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss Sell Brooklyn Home for $14.5 Million

That’s one successful literary couple Read More

Today in “a girl can dream” and “feeling inadequate” news, Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss are selling, for a measly $14.5 million, their luxurious brownstone in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I know what you’re thinking—“let’s pool our salaries and turn that place into a classy post-collegiate fun house.” I’m with you guys. But, unfortunately, I already spent my $14.5 mil on an antique Russian fighter jet from Housing Works.

Though their books have been successful, profitable, and often cinematic, it seems like the power literary couple are making quite a chunk of change from their real estate ventures, the New York Daily News reports.

Foer, who famously doesn’t eat meat, certainly knows how to go for the jugular in real estate: The couple bought the 7,670-square-foot place for $5.75 million in 2005 — a record at the time — and now want to flip it for more than two-and-a-half times that price.
