With towns like Savannah, Georgia, who needs Fellini? Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil takes two narrative strands--each worthy of its own book--and weaves them together to make a single fascinating tale. The first is author John Berendts loving depiction of the characters and rascals that prowled Savannah in the eight years it was his home-away-from-home. Eccentrics thrive in Savannah, he writes, and proves the point by introducing Luther Diggers, a thwarted inventor who just might be plotting to poison the towns water supply- Joe Odom, a jovial jackleg lawyer and squatter nonpareil- and, most memorably, the Lady Chablis, whom you really should meet for yourself. Then, on May 2, 1981, the books second story line commences, when Jim Williams, a wealthy antique dealer and Savannahs host with the most, kills his friend Danny Hansford. (If those quotes make you suspect something, you should.) Was it self-defense, as Williams claimed--or murder? The book sketches four separate trials, during which the dark side of this genteel party town is well and truly plumbed.
