Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt is a 1994 Random House publication In 2019 I read a handful of books that were huge bestsellers in the past but for some reason or another I d never gotten around to reading them I had so much fun reading the books everyone on the planet has read but me I decided to make that a part of my reading journey again this yearThis is one of those books everyone was reading back in the mid nineties I have been meaning to read it for ages and ages I saw the movie many years ago never realizing until much later that it was based on true events Once I discovered this was a work of true crime I knew I had to read the book because the book is always better The book is about the real life murder of Danny Hansford an ill tempered volatile handyman who was shot to death by his lover Jim Williams in Savannah Georgia in the early 1980s The author a native New Yorker who had fallen in love with Savannah decided to write a book about the sensational murder To help readers understand the climate Berendt paints a uniue portrait of Savannah a city which preferred to keep to itself and relished its isolation The city however is uite lively steeped in beauty and history and is the host to a slew of eccentric characters and goings on blended with southern gentility and although not advertised at that time a thriving gay communityBerendt writes the book in a first person narrative a uniue approach for a book marketed as true crime The book as many others have pointed out reads like a novel a work of fiction only it s not However it should be noted that Berendt did fudge the timelines and embellished some events so in truth the book isn t one hundred percent factual but it s close enough As in the movie Lady Chablis steals the show lock stock and barrel But she did occasionally distract from the crime which was supposed to be the focal point of the book Williams swore he shot Danny in self defense His claim however contradicted the forensics analysis about gunshot residue among other things I won t give anything away just in case you haven t read the book but the case lingered on for years before a final judgement was made once and for all Justice may or may not have been served in the courtroom but if one were to believe Minerva the voodoo priestess it very well may have prevailed in other ways from outside of this earthly realm Despite any liberties the author may have taken the book is very absorbing and well entertaining which may seem like an odd choice of words but if you ve read this book you ll know what I mean What a cast of characters Berendt did an amazing job in telling this incredible tale It s no wonder this book stayed on the NYT bestseller list for 216 weeks after its debut 4 stars

This was a decent book There was a lot of mood of which I m a big fan The characters all had the potential to be very interesting but unfortuately they weren t developed That s not to say you don t spend a lot of time with them or find out anything about them it s just that you don t really give a damn The book is written by a magazine journalist who ends up living on and off in Savanah GA for eight years to investigate and chronicle a murder and it s trials This book is or less one long magazine article detailng the events and lives but never really giving you sympathy for any of the characters It does a fine job of keeping the mystery of whether Jim Williams really did the deed a secret but in comparison to In Cold Blood by Truman Capote which I m reading currently this is not worth the effort
