First edition. Includes original jacket, as well as belly band advertising the film starring Kevin Spacey and John Cusack, which was directed by Clint Eastwood. Minimal wear to corners. Near Fine. 1994 Hard Cover. 388 pp. 8vo. Author's first book. Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case.
