Based loosely on Voltaire's satirical novel "Candide," Terry Southern's 1958 book features some pornographic satire of its own.

This book was considered so scandalous that it was initially banned in France and England, but went on to become a bestselling novel in the United States. Now a classic, Candy is the story of a young girl's sexual initiation into a world populated by horny and hilarious characters. Both comical and erotic, the novel finds the young heroine in a string of bizarre and graphic situations — all of it making Candy a cultural icon of the 1960s American sexual revolution.
