John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty, early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? From the dustjacket "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: A Savannah, Georgia Story is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling southern city is certain to remain a modern classic." Movie directed by Clint Eastwood starring John Cusack and Kevin Spacey was released in 1997. Signed by Author. Midnight In The Garden of Good And Evil. 388 pages.
