    [synopsis] => The sensational bestseller-a parody of Voltaire's satire Candide-about the sexy naïf who only wants to truly give of herself Candy, that perfect, adorable, innocent girl, was born on Valentine's Day, and her Daddy says that's why she's so beautiful. At her College in Racine, Wisconsin, in Professor Mephisto's lecture on philosophy and how "deep and aching are the needs of man," Candy seems to take his pronouncement to heart, dedicating the rest of her days to, as Southern and Hoffenberg put it, "bringing the sweet balm of her warmth to all those lonely men on her arduous path to spiritual enlightenment." There is the hunchback who causes her to cry out in wild abandon, "Your hump! Give me your hump!", the crazed gynecologist in the bar bathroom who "examines" her, the salacious aunt, her father's lecherous twin brother, and the nutty Cracker Foundation, where her guru initiates her into the mystical realm of "glandular mastery." It is in Tibet, during an earthquake, that a holy man and the Buddha together lead her to full . . . enlightenment. Originally published under a pseudonym, this book had the unique honor of being banned in France, only to become one of the bestselling novels of 1960s America-one that brought Southern and Hoffenberg both fame and infamy. A book that, along with Lolita, broke the grip of American literary censorship, Candy leaves you tantalized, scandalized, and weak with laughter. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Terry Southern including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate and an extended biography of Mason Hoffenberg.
