Product description

When it was originally published -- first in Paris, then in America, and finally in England, where it was initially banned -- "Candy" was greeted by controversy and overwhelming media attention. Criticized for its scandalous content, the book nonetheless sold thousands of copies, dazzled readers, and won Southern a reputation that will never die. A lusty romp story centered around the impossible sweet Candy Christian, a wide-eyed, luscious, all-American girl, "Candy" -- a satire of Voltaire's "Candide" - chronicles her adventures with mystics, sexual analysts, doctors, and everyone else she means when she breaks ties with her family and sets out to experience the world.
