Genteel society ladies who compare notes on their husbands' suicides. A hilariously foul-mouthed black drag queen. A voodoo priestess who works her roots in the graveyard at midnight. A morose inventor who owns a bottle of poison powerful enough to kill everyone in town. A prominent antiques dealer who hangs a Nazi flag from his window to disrupt the shooting of a movie. And a redneck gigolo whose conquests describe him as a 'walking streak of sex'.

These are some of the real residents of Savannah, Georgia, a city whose eccentric mores are unerringly observed - and whose dirty linen is gleefully aired - in this utterly irresistible book. At once a true-crime murder story and a hugely entertaining and deliciously perverse travelogue, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is as bracing and intoxicating as half-a-dozen mint juleps.

The best non-fiction novel since IN COLD BLOOD and a lot more entertaining * Edmund White *
Enthralling * Robert Winder, Independent *
Berendt - and the reader - are in travel-writer heaven . . . This is a book which leaves you amused, spooked and introduced to a new piece of America * Mark Lawson, Independent on Sunday *
Perfect storytelling - wildly funny, occasionally alarming and utterly enthralling * Moira Shearer, Daily Telegraph *

“Brilliant!”

A fascinating step into the microcosm of Savannah, Georgia in the 1980s. The characters are larger than life, eccentric, interesting and leap off the page with Berendt's sharp observations and well written... More
