John Berendt's "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" is much more famous... (& yes, it's wonderful!) ...but "City of Falling Angels" is my favorite. There are similarities between the two: the story of a modern day event, intertwined with a bit of history, a bit of gossip and quick, compelling word sketches of interesting locals; this time in Venice rather than Savannah.


"We’re not at all like the rest of Georgia. We have a saying: If you go to Atlanta, the first question people ask you is, ‘What’s your business?’ In Macon they ask, ‘Where do you go to church?’ In Augusta they ask your grandmother’s maiden name. But in Savannah the first question people ask you is ‘What would you like to drink?" — John Berendt, Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil

Review: The City of Falling Angels by John Berendt


'Garden of Good and Evil' author John Berendt will judge Saints and Sinners fiction competition

John Berendt, author of 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'...he depicts such a fascinating glimpse of Savannah, GA that I've read the hardback book at least ten times.


Archimede Seguso was an amazing glass artist. Read about him in John Berendt's book The City of Falling Angels.
