In May of 1981, the sound of gunfire startles awake the apparently sleepy Southern town of Savannah, Georgia. Jim Williams, a Gatsby-like, newly moneyed antiques dealer, has fatally shot his sometime lover Danny Hansford -- "a walking streak of sex" and a volatile, dangerous young hustler. John Berendt, former editor of New York magazine, is in the process of discovering the old charm and modern eccentricities of the town that will become his second home, is the outsider who sets out to tell the story of this landmark murder trial in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." The imprisonment and trial of Williams -- and his surprising fate form the narrative thread that stitches together the crazy quilt of oddballs, poseurs, snobs, sorceresses, and outlaws that populate the Savannah Berendt is growing to know and deeply love, and which he shares with the world in this spellbinding true story. Stylish, brilliant, hilarious, and absolutely irresistible, MIDNIGHT is as bracing and intoxicating as half-a-dozen mint juleps.
