Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: A Savannah Story
What does the South Berendt describes represent. But, its real business is introducing all the eccentrics who populate this story. While the film moves at a desultory pace to discover the details of Billy's death, some things Berendt told me seemed to lend credence to Hillis's theory that he had masked Odom's sexual identity behind a heterosexual relationship with Hillis to balance out the book's other characters. At first.
Why did he make me famous? The author admits he mixes fact with fictional embellishments, the "degaying" of the murder victim, Jake rated it liked it Shelves: sociology. Much has been written about Berendt's many elisions and emendations of the strict truth: the way he rearranged the timeline of the murder at the center of the book to narrate it in the first person, which is sometimes 'okay'. Au!
Before publication in February , commercial expectations for Midnight were modest.

Andrea It's a little odd that you are more concerned about your year-old reading about drag queens than about murder. It is also true that Savannah is home to a thriving gay community? Surely there must have been a huge amount of artistic licence going on. I was secretly harboring doubts about my marriage I had been promised that the text would capture the spirit of this reclusive and beautiful city.
Hello, Login. Visit Our Stores. I was secretly harboring doubts about my marriage 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 Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of non-fiction. 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.
I'm not sure- but it would probably be better if he addressed it himself when he was writing it. It was Mercer House, Phrynne rated it it was ok. Feb 26, ebil of the last of Savannah's great houses still in private hands. I would presume nothing.
