Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt is a non-fiction novel about the death of gay prostitute Danny Hansford. The novel describes the life of Danny Hansford and his lover Jim Williams in Savannah, Georgia. The novel does not read like a non-fiction at all! It reads more like a fictional retelling of non-fiction activities.
Honestly, I felt that this novel was all over the place. I couldn’t even nail down what was going on in the story. I found myself easily distracted during my read-through. Not a suggested read. Not well written and uninteresting. I expected more from such a widely talked about novel.
