This made me and everyone else who read it (or saw the movie) want to go to Savannah (some season other than summer, though). It's one of those hybrids of reporting and story-telling, kind of like In Cold Blood.

One thing that felt like a handicap is that I didn't recognize the Johnny Mercer songs. This was in the days before iTunes and such. Now one could easily look them up.
