I loved loved LOVED this book. Its the personal story of one of the most loved "characters" from John Berendts beloved novel about Savannah GA. The Doll, The Grand Empress of Savannah The Lady Chablis. She details her life growing up in a tiny town in Florida to her life as a "show girl" in Savannahs night clubs. She even includes recipes and beauty and fashion tips. It gets a 5 out of 5.

This was ok. Funny, and brutally honest, I suppose. But if you are expecting anything to do with the murder trial and movie, the murder and writing of Garden came near the end of this book chronologically, and the movie had not happened yet. Worth reading.

i picked up this book after our vacay to savannah. (we also came home and watched midnight in the garden of good and evil)

i had a hard time getting into hiding my candy. the Doll (Lady Chablis) writes how she speaks and sometimes that can be painful to read. once i was able to get into that mind frame, it was better to understand.

she has had a freaking amazing life- full of lots of down and a few ups. its so wonderful to read about a woman her pulled herself up out of a mess and made something of her life.

i loved all of the pictures of her and how she did not hold back! i also liked that she mentions places that we went to in savannah and that i could identify with a lot of what she talked about.

like her, im totally a white southern belle at heart (ok, im white and a bio girl, but i was raised in cali)

this was such a fascinating story and i hope that im able to meet the Lady Chablis in person!!
