Revisiting a Classic

midnightcover

Since my trip to Savannah, I’ve decided to re-read the classic Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. While in Savannah we visited Clary’s Cafe and visited the original Bird Girl statue at the Telfair Museum of Art. The story focuses on a murder and subsequent trial of  a local art collector/ antiques dealer who is also a semi-closeted homosexual.  A magazine reporter finds himself in Savannah amid the beautiful architecture and odd doings to write a feature on one of this local dealer’s famous Christmas parties. He’s intrigued by the man and his young lover who ends up dead. The reporter stays in Savannah to cover the murder trial and along the way he encounters many interesting characters. Between descriptions of his meetings with every eccentric in Savannah, participating in midnight graveyard rituals and helping solve the mysteries surrounding the young mans murder it’s an entertaining and colorful read.
