ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  John Berendt grew up in Syracuse, New York.  He earned a B.A. in English from Harvard University, where he worked on the staff of The Harvard Lampoon.  After graduating in 1961, he moved to New York City to pursue a career in publishing.  Berendt has written for David Frost and Dick Cavett, was editor of New York magazine from 1977 to 1979, and wrote a monthly column for Esquire from 1982 to 1994.  Berendt first traveled to Savannah in the early 1980s.  Over the ensuing eight years his visits became more frequent and extended, until he was spending more time in Savannah than in New York.  Part of the appeal, Berendt says, lay in the city's penchant for morbid gossip.  Since the publication and unprecedented success of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, John Berendt has become a Savannah celebrity and was even presented with the key to the city.  The City of Fallen Angels, his #1 Internationally Bestselling Book about Venice, Italy, was published in 2005.
