This book is an amazing work of creative nonfiction. Savannah, Georgia provides some of the most unbeleivable characters for Berendt's work. No doubt some liberties were taken to make dull plot lines a bit more exciting, but everyone in this book is a real person. Everyone wants to be one the right party lists and to be left off is highly insulting. The world's coolest drag queen is in this book as well. There is also a very eccentric art dealer who is the hottest host in town. There are deaths and parties and conspiracy theories and beautiful women and Southern trappings (including afternoon tea and card socials for the upper-crust women), and of course voodoo.
