Twilight Parody

Nightlight: A Parody by The Harvard Lampoon (NY: Vintage, 2009)

This parody dissects all the stupidity at the heart of the Twilight series, including the first movie. In fact, some of the images come straight from the movie, and a reader who has not seen the movie may not understand all the gags inspired by the silly visuals in the movie. On the other hand, only a reader who has been immersed in the novel--and wondered at some of its ridiculous situations and statements--can appreciate the (nit)wit that is Belle Goose and her fellow characters here. Werewolf fans, take note: the dogs are completely absent from this parody.
