Literary Savannah

From the Literary Cities series

Patrick Allen (editor)

A lively anthology of writing spanning several hundred years, for locals and visitors alike

The statues of Savannah’s Monument Square are silent. The status of the solemn girl in Bonaventure Cemetery—made famous in John Berendt’s now legendary book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil—cannot speak. Only Savannah’s literary monuments can give voice to the rich and diverse history of one of America’s greatest and most visited cities. Many have written about Savannah, but few have captured the true spirit of southern grace most often associated with her history, as well as the mysteries and humor that await behind the walled gardens and gated homes. Whether born there or simply passing through, writers have been inspired by Savannah for centuries, and in Literary Savannah the city’s stories are finally told.
