“Twilight” mania has had one unexpected benefit to the literary community: a boost in sales for Emily Brontë’s “Wuthering Heights.” Brontë’s novel about obsessive love is read by Bella in “Eclipse,” and young readers in France are eagerly picking up the translated copy of “Wuthering Heights” to draw their own comparisons between the two lovestruck couples.
It seems that “Twilight” has a Midas touch when it comes to the tricky young adult market, at least in France. Do you think sales of “Wuthering Heights” will similarly rise in the U.S.?
