Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil

I've read John Berendt's book three or four times now and every time I think "What a wonderful story." The book was on the New York Times best seller list longer than any book in history. To research the book Berendt moved to Savannah and lived there eight years. It's no wonder it turned out so well.

Having said all that, it must be noted that some stores put this book in their fiction section due to Berendt's having changed some characters and shuffled the time sequence (he fesses up to this in the afterword to his book). Such shortcomings not withstanding, this is by any measure a terrific book.
