10 out of 10

Technically I listened to this on audiobook, but I feel no compunction about sharing my thoughts here anyway.

This book is just so good. It's funny, full of memorable characters, and completely true. That last actually makes it even more compelling. In short, it's about the author's adventures in Savannah, Georgia, in the 1980s and all the quirky people he meets. It's also about the murder trial(s) of Jim Williams, a wealthy antiques dealer whose annual Christmas party is the height of the social scene. I was drawn in from the very first, and now I desperately want to visit Savannah and see its storied beauty.

edit 13 April 2008: Released this at Panera in Alexandria, VA, yesterday at the local BC meet, and it was journaled before I got home! Wonderful! :D
