Candy - Olympia Press 1958 First Edition
Olympia Press 1958, Paris - Paris: Olympia Press, 1958. First edition. 12mo, green perfect-bound wrappers, 189 pp. Near Fine; touch peripheral wear. Please see scans. Bearing the later price overstamp. Scarce first edition - if you're here, you know the story of the bannings, burnings, and later pirate and non-pirate editions. The story of a naive and gorgeous young blonde girl - who quickly finds out in exactly what way we men are all, instantly and always, the same - borrows its plot structure from Voltaire's Candide and uses that strangely juxtaposed vehicle to shine a light on all the vagaries of modern western life which beg to be lampooned. Considered by many, then and now, to be a classic of "black (dark) humor". In 2006, Playboy Magazine included Candy on its list of the "25 Sexiest Novels Ever Written". Handsome and rare specimen of a title that is en route to becoming royalty. Please review scans. L52n [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
