Best Of All Possible Worlds is a unique delight to read. Written as a sort of sequel to “Candide,” Anderson recreates Voltaire’s narrative style, but with a conceptualist’s eye. He takes a small fragment from Candide and builds a rich story upon it that is full of comedic turns of phrase and an absurdity reminiscent of Alfred Jarry’s “Ubu Roi."

I continue to be impressed with Gary Anderson’s literary genius and I highly recommend Best Of All Possible Worlds to anyone looking for a critical and fresh look at the world.
