July Read-Candide

While the other beach bums might be thumbing through the latest Gillian Flynn, this summer we will be sidling up poolside with  the 18th Century page-turner by Voltaire -Candide. Do not fear this oldie but goodie is brief -where high brow meets brevity -a rare treat. This monthly selection comes from Melissa, who’s literary breadth never ceases to amaze (she has been known to be both a Turn of the Screw/Henry James and “Bleachy-Haired Honky Bitch” devotee!)

 

The other suggested reads included The Hellfire Club and I’ll be Gone in the Dark.
