This book has everything!

Midnight in the garden of good and evil.
By John Berendt.

This is one of my all time favourite books. It is classified as non-fiction, but it reads like a novel. It tells the story of John Kelso, a New York writer who goes to Savannah on a spur of the moment holiday, but gets caught up in the eccentric characters of the hauntingly beautiful city, and decides to stay a bit longer, to get to know them a bit better. These true life characters include a drag queen named Chablis, a man who walks an invisable dog every day, and a voodoo queen named Minerva, just to name a few. While in Savannah, Kelso meets an antiques dealer called Jim Williams who gets arrested for murder. Kelso, along with everyone else in the city, closely follows the 4 murder trials to see if Jim killed Billy, or if it was self defence. This book is based on real life events and has a little bit of everything, comedy, tragedy, romance etc, and is sure to appeal to everyone.
