Midnight" Book and Movie Tour

Already sinking fast, the heart goes right under when the early chapters turn out to concern a media type - John Berendt, magazine editor and columnist - escaping the New York rat-race to chill out in the charming Southern fastness of Savannah, Georgia. But, thankfully, this book is not A Year In Savannah: a townie's jolly put-down of the locals. Berendt stayed eight years, and chanced upon the sinister and twisty murder case which turns his narrative into a rare travel book with as many actual shocks as culture shocks. For the first pages, Berendt is more or less the standard travel writer, hanging around town bagging and tagging the local characters. Admittedly, these are generally unusual species, including several never quite caught before. There is William Simon Glover, who walks Savannah's streets shouting to an imaginary dog to follow him.

The book, Berendt's first, was published in The book was subsequently made into Clint Eastwood 's film adaptation. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is atmospherically Deep South coastal Savannah , Georgia, and Beaufort , South Carolina and Southern Gothic in tone, depicting a wide range of eccentric personalities in and around the city of Savannah , Georgia. The central narrative concerns the killing of Danny Hansford, a local male prostitute characterized as "a good time not yet had by all" by an important Savannah socialite , by respected antiques dealer Jim Williams. This results in four murder trials, with the fourth ending in acquittal after the judge finally agreed to a change of venue to move the case away from the Savannah jury pool. The book describes Williams' version of the killing, which is that it was in "self-defense"—the result of Hansford, who is prone to fits of rage, shooting at Williams with a gun that is on display, and Williams shooting back in self-defense—and not murder, pre-meditated or otherwise, by Williams.
