Candide tells of the hilarious adventures of the naive Candide, who doggedly believes that "all is for the best "even when faced with injustice, suffering, and despair. Controversial and entertaining, Candide is a book that is vitally relevant today in our world pervaded by--as Candide would say--"the mania for insisting that all is well when all is by no means well. "A Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition with French flaps and rough front Completely new translation and introduction Amazing cover art from one of the most beloved modern comic artists."@en
