THE CANDY MEN
A Rabelaisian satire loosely based on Voltaires Candide,Terry Southern and Mason Hoffenbergs Candy became one of the most famous novels of the wild 1960s. Detailing its humble beginnings in Paris through its agonizing three-year writing gestation (often on paper napkins, lost or destroyed), the authors wily business dealings first with French-based publisher Maurice Girodias, then Putnam in America, this book follows with unblinking scrutiny.
Candys underground (then mainstream) success, its overboard piracy, its legal shenanigans, and its all-star movie flop. Replete with deceptions and self-deceptions, midnight dope runs, and general pandemonium.
