Voltaire's masterpiece of witty philosophy tells of the 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."155 pages, softcover.

This Penguin Deluxe Edition features an ingenious comic-book style cover.
