After its publication in 2000, Darwin Porter's Midnight in Savannah quickly established itself as one of the best-selling gay novels in the history of the Deep South.
Eugene Raymond, a filmmaker in Nashville, writes, "Porter disturbs by showing the world as a film noir cul-de-sac. Corruption has no respect for gender or much of anything else.
In MIDNIGHT, both Lavender Morgan (at 72, the world's oldest courtesan) and Tipper Zelda (an obese, fading chanteuse taunted as 'the black widow') purchase lust from sexually conflicted young men with drop-dead faces, chiseled bodies, and genetically gifted crotches. These women once relied on their physicality to steal the hearts and fortunes of the world's richest and most powerful men. Now, as they slide closer every day to joining the corpses of their former husbands, these once-beautiful women must depend, in a perverse twist of fate, on sexual outlaws for le petit mort. And to survive, the hustlers must idle their personal dreams while struggling to cajole what they need from a sexual liaison they detest. Mendacity reigns. Physical beauty as living hell. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof's Big Daddy must be spinning in his grave right now.
