Correspondence between Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss That Explains How They Wrote the Same Book

by Leigh Stein

I wrote, Dear Stephen Hawking.
And then I crossed it out and wrote, Dear Nicole.
And then I wrote you a whole letter on a ribbonless typewriter.
And then I put a key in the envelope.
And then I put in a picture of a doorknob.
And a flying cat.

Jonathan Safran Foer

Dear Jonathan Safran Foer,

Your letters are my life.
Is it okay if I write the same book as you?
Let me know, bubele.

x o,

Dear Nicole,

Don’t worry about the book.
I will write it for you.
You give me heavy boots and that is why I love you.

Jonathan Safran Foer

Dear Jonathan Safran Foer,

But don’t make it as good as yours or people won’t believe I wrote it.
No two people have been as lonely and happy as we.


Leigh Stein lives in Brooklyn, but not with Jonathan Safran Foer.
