  1. Have you ever wanted to read something you knew would be rich, fascinating and true I read Midnight in the Garden shortly after it was published I was in my early 30 s and read for plot, rushing the story along and occasionally skimming the pages Even reading this poorly, I retained a sense of the mystique of Savannah and the characters of this book, and when I had the opportunity to visit the city in person, I found myself craving another opportunity to read this story and let the details of Be [...]


  2. This book received glowing reviews so I assumed it was a winner By page 94 I was saying, OK so the circus is in town with all these oddball, quirky characters which when described is mildly amusing if there is a purpose I kept asking, when is something, ANYTHING going to happen Are all these endless strange southerners going to be involved in this story Usually there is an incident or a plot twist or something before the end of the first 100 pages not here I gave up in frustration What a disappo [...]


  3. I have to say that it was only halfway through this book that I realized that it was nonfiction If these were characters that were a figment of the author s imagination, then the book would only be one star.But, these were all real people, and that brings the book up to 4 stars.When this book first came out about 25 years ago, I remember that I was in our local public library and I saw the cover and was captivated by it I never did pick up the book , because I had too many others at just that mo [...]


  4. This was recommended to me by a friend when I told them I was moving to South Carolina Here I am over a year later and I can t get through it Each chapter is a little story of its own and there doesn t seem to be a plot anywhere The chapters are overly descriptive I mean do I really care about the state of someone s stairs in an old house Anyway, years ago, I couldn t even finish the movie You would have thought I learned from that I m sorry I bought this book.


  5. When I visited Savannah last year, a local guide mentioned this book and, with a wink, she said, and it s all true I thought she meant the historical background and possibly some anecdotes were fact based I was well into the book and had been fact checking occasionally on recognizable names such as Johnny Mercer and Conrad Aiken before I realized it is a work of non fiction It reads like a novel and a fascinating one at that Apparently, Savannah is peopled by the most colorful characters imagina [...]


  6. An extraordinary true life story that was often extremely funny as well as quite astounding.The authors fly on the wall style often created a remote and objective feel to the story Thus,one did not fully engage with the characters on an emotional level This, I believe, allowed freedom in not judging but sitting back and enjoying the description and actions of the characters to the full It was almost like watching a play in which all the action was true and all the astounding because of it.A grea [...]


  7. I remembered the title and that there was a film of it made years ago However it was only recently I was looking for new book ideas for my kindle I won t spoil it I thought it was quite brilliant and amazing tale which truly beggars belief I loved it the prose is brilliant the descriptions wonderful and the characters extraordinary I urge you to read it
