Jim Williams had it all: style, culture, charisma, and sophistication. As a premier antiques dealer in Savannah, he mingled with celebrities, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the Rockefellers, who came to admire his extraordinary treasures. His legacy thrust Savannah into the national spotlight and transformed the genteel city into a tourist mecca. But three decades of hard work came crashing down the night he shot Danny Hansford, his wild young lover. Jim Williams stood trial four times over the next decade for premeditated murder. Today, tourists flock to Mercer House to see the gorgeous mansion depicted in Clint Eastwood’s movie and the book from which it was made—Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil—where flamboyant designer and antiques dealer Jim Williams (Kevin Spacey) killed Danny Hansford(Jude Law). While the movie and book portrayed the natives of Savannah as remarkably decadent, exotic characters, they missed the surprising dark side of Jim Williams himself. He was a smooth predator whose crimes could have put him behind bars long before the death of Danny Hansford. After Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is the newly revised and expanded version of the #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling true account of the crime, which includes crucial testimony recreating the courtroom drama between a gifted prosecutor and a brilliant defense attorney as they battle over the future of a self-made aristocrat. More than 40 photos and revealing insider interviews bring new life to the vivid cast of characters in this unique southern crime story.

In the early morning of May 2, 1981, Danny Hansford was shot dead by James Williams with a World War II vintage Luger in a historic Savannah mansion. For the next eight-and-a-half years, through four murder trials and intrigue which reached the highest levels of Georgia politics—including a former governor and the Georgia Supreme Court—lawyers battled over whether the 50-year-old Williams shot the 21-year-old Hansford in self-defense. The case inspired a best-selling book and a movie directed by Clint Eastwood. Written by Dep Kirkland, who arrived at the scene when Hansford’s body was still on the floor, Lawyer Games is the true story of this remarkable case. Kirkland, the Chief Assistant DA at the time, made the decision to arrest Williams and tried the first of four murder trials alongside the district attorney. His firsthand knowledge allows him not only to deeply analyze the murder case but also to expose the legal mischief spawned when a defendant facing unshakable physical evidence possesses almost unlimited funds. True crime aficionados will be drawn to the two stories told in the book: The riveting story of the case, its evidence (including facts never heard in the courtroom), trials and results, and the incredible eight-year campaign to beat a murder rap no matter what, with a look behind the curtain at a darker side of the American criminal justice system.

Taking the fire that destroyed the Fenice theatre in 1996 as his starting point, John Berendt creates a unique and unforgettable portrait of Venice and its extraordinary inhabitants. Beneath the exquisite facade of the world's most beautiful historic city, scandal, corruption and venality are rampant, and John Berendt is a master at seeking them out. Ezra Pound and his mistress, Olga; poet Mario Stefani; the Rat Man of Treviso; or Mario Moro - self-styled carabiniere, fireman, soldier or airman, depending on the day of the week. With his background in journalism, Berendt is perfectly poised to gain access to private and unapproachable people, and persuade them to talk frankly to him. The result is mischievous, witty, compelling - and destined to be the non-fiction succes d'estime of the year.

"For more than two years, a rapist prowled the night streets of the homey, All-American city of Spokane, Washington, terrorizing women, sparking a run on gun stores, and finally causing one newspaper to offer a reward--the calls taken by the distinguished managing editor himself, Gordon Coe. In March 1981, luck and inspired police work at last produced an arrest, and Spokane shuddered. The suspect was clean cut and conservative ... and Gordon Coe's son. For eighteen months, Jack Olsen researched the cases of Fred and Ruth Coe to try to learn not only what happened within that family, but how and why. He interviewed more than 150 people and built up a portrait not only of that extraordinary family, but of the mind of a psychopath. And searching the memories of the women in Fred Coe's life, he unearthed a most horrifying question: What is it like to love and live with a man for years--and then discover he is a psychopathic criminal?"--Provided by publisher.

The Architectural Uncanny presents an engaging and original series of meditations onissues and figures that are at the heart of the most pressing debates surrounding architecturetoday. Anthony Vidler interprets contemporary buildings and projects in light of the resurgentinterest in the uncanny as a metaphor for a fundamentally "unhomely" modern condition. The essaysare at once historical - serving to situate contemporary discourse in its own intellectual traditionand theoretical - opening up the complex and difficult relationships between politics, socialthought, and architectural design in an era when the reality of homelessness and the idealism of theneo-avant-garde have never seemed so far apart.Vidler, one of the deftest and surest critics of thecontemporary scene, explores aspects of architecture through notions of the uncanny as they havebeen developed in literature, philosophy, and psychology from the beginning of the nineteenthcentury to the present. He interprets the unsettling qualities of today's architecture - itsfragmented neo-constructivist forms reminiscent of dismembered bodies, its "seeing walls"replicating the passive gaze of domestic cyborgs, its historical monuments indistinguishable fromglossy reproductions - in the light of modern reflection on questions of social and individualestrangement, alienation, exile, and homelessness.Focusing on the work of architects such as BernardTschumi, Rem Koolhaas, Peter Eisenman, Coop Himmelblau, John Hejduk, Elizabeth Diller, and RicardoScofidio, as well as theorists of the urban condition, Vidler delineates the problems and paradoxesassociated with the subject of domesticity.Anthony Vidler is William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor ofArchitecture at Princeton University. His most recent book is Claude-Nicolas Ledoux: Architectureand Social Reform at the End of the Ancien Régime.
