This is one of my all time favs and one of the few books I've ever read twice. It's full of facinating, quirky characters like Lady Chablis, the transvestite, and the guy who walks a non-existant dog down the street every day.

After reading the first time, I longed to visit Savannah, and a few years later, I got to do so. It's a gorgeous city with a park in each city block, and the book makes it come to life. I actually got to tour the house owned by the family of the main character. Interestingly, the murder is never mentioned on the tour. Superb look at the underbelly of a city and humanity in general.
