Candide: Or, Optimism (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

Candide: or, Optimism - Voltaire, Chris Ware, Theo Cuffe, Michael Wood The cover lead me to buy it, and now I think that is why it is still sitting on my shelf. I didn't laugh at all while reading it; perhaps life imitates art too much or maybe I wasn't in the right frame of mind to full enjoy it. Though I wonder, as I laugh at the SNL skits of the Penelope character, who doesn't seem that much different from the old lady character in Candide.
