Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, John Berendt, Vintage Books, 1994.
I first read this book when I was living in Florida and had never visited Savannah. I didn't understand it. Now I live in Charleston, SC, and have visited Savannah a few time. I get it. Characters in the South really are this quirky. And Savannah and Charleston may be 'sister cities', but Charleston is the prim and proper sister, and Savannah is the sister who throws the best parties.
