Summary

From the legendary comedic scholars who illuminated the tour de force Twilight so brilliantly in the New York Times bestselling Nightlight comes The Hunger Pains, a hilarious send-up of the immensely popular dystopian young adult novel, The Hunger Games. As excitement surrounding the Spring 2012 release of the major motion picture The Hunger Games reaches a fever pitch, the Harvard Lampoon’s The Hunger Pains takes on the story of a young girl forced to join a survival contest in order to save her community in dystopian, post-apocalyptic Panem. Beyond a scene-for-scene parody of Suzanne Collins’s book, The Hunger Pains lampoons not only Collins’s writing and characters, but cleverly tackles the themes of morality, government control, and personal independence. The Hunger Games trilogy has sold more than 3 million copies in pr∫ The Hunger Pains is the perfect gift for the millions of fans of the book universally hailed as addictive, exciting, poignant, complex, and brilliantly plotted .

Author Biography

The Harvard Lampoon debuted in February 1876 and is the world's longest continually published humor magazine. Written by seven undergraduates and modeled on Punch, the British humor magazine, the debut issue took the Harvard campus by storm. United States President Ulysses S. Grant was advised not to read the magazine, as he would be too much in stitches to run the government. Harvard Lampoon alumni include comedians Conan O'Brien, Andy Borowitz, Greg Daniels, Jim Downey, Al Jean, and B.J. Novak. Lampoon alumni write and have written for Saturday Night Live, The Simpsons, Futurama, Late Night with David Letterman, Seinfeld, The League, NewsRadio, The Office, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, and dozens of others. The Lampoon has also graduated many noted authors, such as George Plimpton, George Santayana, and John Updike.
