   BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS by Gary Anderson 

Revisits Voltaire’s Candide on May 29th.

May 16, 2012 -- Greenwich, CT – BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS is a new literary novel launching on May 29th by the critically acclaimed literary novelist, Gary Anderson, to revisit the masterpiece of Voltaire's Candide.

BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS is the second literary novel by Anderson whose debut novel, Animal Magnet, has been voted among the “Best Books of the Decade” and “Best Literary Books of All Time” by Goodreads, where it also holds an average rating of 4.86 stars out of five stars.

BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS continues the saga of Jacques the Anabaptist from Candide in the satiric spirit of Voltaire. Anderson's novel begins with the return of Voltaire's hero, Candide, to find his beloved tutor, Pangloss, destitute and abandoned on the streets of Leyden, South Holland. Set in the mid-eighteenth century, the story then follows the lives of two brothers, Jakob and Robrecht Onderdonk, who lead antithetical lives.

"At the heart of the novel is Jakob's quest to abandon his life as a sailor at sea for a more edifying life on land. In contrast Robrecht is determined fully to embrace a sinful life at sea," said Gary Anderson. "BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS builds upon Voltaire's masterwork with an air of irreverence and a generous serving of the absurd about the universal problem of evil in a world created by a perfect God."  

Voltaire mercilessly railed against the philosophy advanced by Leibniz and articulated in Alexander Pope’s Essay on Man in which Pope writes, “Everything that is is right.” 

“In BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS the writing of Anderson rivals the witty satire of Voltaire: there’s genius in both literary novels,” said David B. Lentz, publisher.

Gary Anderson is from the prairies of southern Alberta. He has a master's degree in English from the University of Victoria. After living for a time in Korea, he resides with his wife and two children in New Jersey.

BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS is planned to become available at all major online booksellers and fine bookstores worldwide on May 29th.
