Nightlight- a parody

nightlight a parody

Taken from

t's the first time in 40 years that The Harvard Lampoon has released a parody novel and we think they've picked the perfect victim for their humor: Twilight!

Now, before you grab your pitchforks tween vampire lovers, give it a chance! The press release sent out by the publishers, Vintage Books, explains:

Nightlight stakes at the heart of what makes Twilight tick…or, really, cuts to the core of it…. Brooding and hilarious, let Nightlight be your guide through the Twilight fandom that has eclipsed the mind of every teenager you have ever met.”

The story follows a young high school student named Belle Goose who moves to Switchblade, Oregon, and meets Edwart Mullen, a “super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls.”

Are you laughing yet? Okay, we'll keep going:

Belle is all about vampires and convinces herself that Edwart is in fact a being of the undead. She comes to this conclusion after seeing him do things she considers "otherworldly"(”Edwart leaves his Tater Tots™ untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!”).

If your vampire-obsessed hearts can handle a little healthy dose of mockery, you should pick the book up on Nov. 3rd.

If not, continue on your path of crazed, angsty devotion, none-the-wiser oF this book.
