Lidia Jean Kott is an intern at NPR Books.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, here are three literary couples who not only read each other’s work with pleasure — but also understood it and liked it, and even fell in love because of it. Unlike the romance of say, Dante and Beatrice, these relationships are all built on literary collaboration. And what could be more romantic than that? [Copyright 2013 NPR]
