    1. I don t usually read autobiographies, but I was in Savannah, loving the atmosphere, and somewhat obsessed with Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil So I read this Good telling of what it was like to grow up in a small southern community knowing that you didn t fit in, dealing with poverty, hardship, and being born the wrong sex Funny, heartwarming, sad, and a quick read.

    3. There are very few instances when watching a movie before you read a book is not just enjoyable, it s critical The simple pulp paperbacks dedicated to science fiction is one example, but while only truly obsessive fans would enjoy Lando Calrissian s Milllenium Falcon Adventures the public at large can find benefit from reading Hiding My Candy, even though you should see Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil before you read the book.The Lady Chablis, a stand up comedienne Drag Queen, is a witty [...]

I first came to be introduced to the character of the Lady Chablis while watching the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good Evil And then after I read the book, I realized that what I saw in the movie was for real.This person, this character, stood out stuck with me due to her humor, her ability to speak the truth and whatever else was on her mind I thought she was hilarious and yet a strong person to not only allow people who read the book and then see the movie, into her life and have it turned [...]

    6. Funny throughout and very different Helps open our minds to a different culture Warning laced with profanity which may be offensive to some Includes a glossary, recipes and a directory of cast of characters at the end.

    7. I had an issue with the book being written in the third person, grammatically incorrect southern vernacular.

    8. The Lady Chablis is a lady indeed and she has LIVED If you re wondering where you may have heard of her, she featured quite a bit in the book and movie Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil and she played herself in the movie Born Benjamin Edward Knox, the Lady Chablis has gone through it all with a sense of humor and a quick wit I enjoyed hearing about her Christian upbringing in a small rural Florida town and how her inner showwoman loved spreading the Word as a child I was also surprised at [...]

    9. I just joined the book club my office has, and this was my first book I read for it This is the memoir of the Lady Chalbis aka Brenda Knox I d never heard of her, but apparently she featured prominently in the book movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil I ve never read the book but i vaguely remember my dad renting the movie and it being boring and me wandering away or falling asleep, back when i was a kid I hated the writing style She refers to herself in the third person a lot, and she [...]

    10. I was very intrigued by this character after reading and watching Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, so when I discovered she wrote an autobiography I had to read it She is witty, clever, and oh so full of herself It gets a little wearing after awhile I was hoping for something a little serious and behind the scenes perhaps, but The Lady is all about image, and this book is all about perpetuating that, so nothing new here really Still, it s fascinating to try and understand someone who is [...]

    13. It took me a long time to finish this book because I had trouble staying interested I liked her story in theory, but it s written like she talks and that gets old really quickly So I kept reading a few pages at a time and then letting it sit Today I brought it with me on the ferry so I had over 2 hours with nothing to do but read it, and I finally finished Her story was interesting but it never felt fleshed out There seemed to be so much left out that it was a little hard to follow in places But [...]

    14. This book was all about The Lady Chablis Benjamin Edward Knox and his her life story from Quincy, Florida to where she resides today as a main attraction personality in Savannah, Georgia The life was hard but somehow she got through it A sometimes hard luck story to read, this queen knows who she is and doesn t apologize for it She was introduced to us in the novel, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and also appeared in the 1990 s movie.She has fame, fortune and success now Not to bad for [...]

    15. Someone gave this to me as a gag gift several years ago after I had bored them one too many times about my appreciation for Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil In it, the Lady Chablis is both open and sassy in recounting her life and evolution into the person she wanted to be While not quite a wordsmith and certainly without the levels of drama and accomplishment necessary for a great biography, I was still charmed with the story of a person who turned herself and her life into what she want [...]

    16. The autobiography of drag queen personality extraordinaire The Lady Chablis, who made her debut in John Berendt s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and the subsequent movie thereafter, tells the world her life story.I finished this book in 2 days, it s written as if it were narrated by the Lady herself and I couldn t put it down I don t think I ve read an autobiography so amusing since, well, ever.If you were even slightly piqued by her in either Berendt s book or her big screen debut, you [...]

    17. I read and loved Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil I m from Savannah, and I ve been to Club One several times for their shows and have seen The Lady Chablis perform, so my mother in law gave me this book for Christmas and thought I d enjoy reading her life story I really liked it It was interesting to read about her struggle to make it as not only an entertainer but to really discover and be proud of who she is A must read for anyone who has seen her shows or read enjoyed midnight in the g [...]

    18. I very much enjoyed The Lady Chablis book read most of it while getting a pedicure but there were some really heavy emotional topics in the book physical abuse, drug addiction, etc and it was all sort of glossed over with a la tee dah, life goes on attitude which I suppose is The Lady Chablis trademark calling card resilience and grace, no matter what but it made me sad that there wasn t a little acknowledgement of just how intense a life The Lady Chablis has been through overall enjoyed the bo [...]

    19. I think i was hoping this would be less of a one note wonder than it was I think The Lady chablis is probably quite entertaining in person, but her style in writing doesn t translate for me I skimmed the second half, including the recipes, lexicon and beauty fashion tips.The plan is to release this somewhere, along with Midnight in the GArden of good and Evil I just have to think of a good spot Savannah, maybe A drag club Hmmmm

    20. I came to this book hoping for another view of the events of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil While Berendt did contribute a preface and the cotillion and filming are touched on, this is a memoir of The Lady Chablis finding her identity in the deep South and expanding it into an entertainment career boosted by the book and film written in her dialect and slang with glossaries, this is a quick and entertaining read she include a includes transvestite beauty tips and her recipes.

    21. What a fabulous read Such fun The Lady Chablis, made famous by John Berendt s best seller Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, tells her life story with wit and passion She s hilariously funny but also gives you an insight into the extraordinary difficulties of growing up transgendered in the South.

    22. It s the autobiography of the drag performer featured in John Berendt s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, who plays herself in the film of the same name It s interesting Tha narration is sometimes entertaining, sometimes annoying Basically told in the same voice character she uses in her act There are recipes and beauty tips in the back, and glamour shots throughout.

    23. Just had to read this book I had read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and enjoyed But what prompted me the most to read this book was that Lady Chablis lived a few doors down from my apartment in West Columbia, SC I never saw or met her Just think she is an interesting character and has an interesting story.

    24. The Lady Chablis is of course one of the biggest personalities in the South, and this little lifetime collection of anecdotes is a cute two day read If you liked her in Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil then you ll want to know which is exactly what this book gives you A good time two day read.

    25. This was enjoyable, not only for the sassy text, but also for the many photos taken in some of Savannah s finest landmarks Campy for sure The Lady uses humor to cope with the many indignities afforded to her as trans woman living in the South The tone is Priscilla Queen of the Desert than Boys Don t Cry.

    26. My Candy in title selection for WBC I said to the librarian when I left there with A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, a Vegetarian Cookbook, a book about the supreme court, and THIS book, I am nothing if not unpredictable.

    27. Forget scene stealing, The Lady Chablis stole the entire book She is a bigger than life character introduced in the non fiction tale, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and this is her autobiography Bonus The recipes in the back are amazing

    28. If you ve seen the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good Evil you will love this book It feels as if you are interviewing the Lady Chablis personally The autobiography is written in the speak she uses on stage Very poignant yet very funny

    29. If you read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil this book expands The Lady Chablis and all her ways She gives you her background and the stories of growing up to become the character she is and she doesn t sensor anything.

    30. The recipe section wasn t really helpful to me as a borderline vegan, but the rest of the book was pretty arresting There were a few times that she would make fun of other women for not doing femininity right or basically take cheap shots like that, which threw me off Light stuff, fun read.
