    Forever funny; forever sexy

    I read Candy in the 60's. I enjoyed it so much then, that I wrote about two chapters to a sequel, but never finished. I just re-read the precious, sweet book again and was completely thrilled. It is one of the finest books in the history of the world. YOU should read it. It just may make tiny mushrooms grow on your chest. That would be very good.
