Candy was originally published in 1958 by the Olympia Press with the authors writing as Maxwell Kenton. Candy is the story of Candy Christian, aged eighteen, an extremely pretty and desirable but naive young woman, who finds herself in a variety of farcical sexual situations as a result of her desire to help others. The men in her life, regardless of age or relationship, wish only to possess her.
The book is in good condition with a little foxing to the endpapers, the dustwrapper is rubbed to the edges and joints but has not been price-clipped.
