I just finished Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil — a true story about the bizarre and fascinating characters in Savannah, Georgia. The author spent 8 years commuting from NYC to write the book, and happened to stumble upon a murder mystery (among countless other crazy people and stories) as it unfolded in front of him. I visited Savannah last summer, and found it to be a strange, eerie, yet interesting city. There’s just something a little different with everything down there. Worth the trip for sure.
The movie version of the book was ok. Kevin Spacey and John Cusack were dead on as the main characters.
