Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt

A sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.

Shots rang out in Savannahs grandest mansion in the misty, early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendts 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.

It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Womans Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the soul of pampered self-absorption; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else.

Antiques dealer Jim Williams stands trial for the murder of year-old hustler Danny Hansford in the historic city of Savannah--but did he do it? This strange true story of an eccentric Southern gentleman reads like a locked-room mystery, complete with conflicting evidence and colorful characters who are either proud or deluded, or both. What the story gains in this full-cast medium cannot be overstated. The atmospheric extras--including an e-book version, interactive visuals, interviews, and more--all point fingers of intrigue toward the core of the production: the superb performances by Jonathan Davis, Robin Miles, Laverne Cox, and others. Davis plays straight man to a party of offbeat character interpretations, seamlessly weaving in and out of the story. Tone is a weapon all the narrators use for the purpose of delivering a unique, all-encompassing experience.
