Bought yesterday from a charity shop. One of the 1001 BTRBYD.

From the blurb:

"When he wrote Candide Voltaire (1694-1778) had gained a reputation throughout Europe as a tragic dramatist, an epic poet, and a liberal-minded historian. Candide, although his wittiest novel, deals with the problems of suffering and the existence of evil, and in it Voltaire attacks the hopelessness and callousness of the 'all is for the best' philosophy, as personified by the tutor Pangloss. The resilience of human nature, however, is emphasized in the amazing reversals of fortune which Candide and his friends survive, The artistry of Voltaire's story-telling is admirably conveyed in this translation by Professor John Butt."

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I donated a bag of books to this charity shop today. I'm moving house soon and having a clear-out, I've had these books on my shelf for a while so it's time to find a new home for them.
