Jane Austen is my dirty little secret. In feminist theory classes, I read her novels side-by-side with modern Harlequin Romances, and the comparisons are vast. Without fail, there must always be a man, a manor, and a marriage.
I am a 30-year-old woman in love with a teenage vampire. This is not a “National Inquirer” headline. I am embarrassed, but I do not attempt to keep this fascination under wraps. I am in literary lust with Edward Cullen, the hero/antihero of Stephanie Meyer’s “Twilight” quartet. I thought I would never say this but Edward Cullen makes me want to be 17 again.
