Man of a Million Fragments

The True Story of Clay Shaw

Authored by Donald H. Carpenter

At last, a full-length biography of Clay Shaw, the prominent New Orleans man implicated in the assassination of President Kennedy during the investigation by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison. This complete account tells the story of Shaw's life from the beginning, including his early days as a playwright and telegraph employee, his time in New York City in the public relations and theater worlds, his military service during World War II, his spectacular career from the beginning of the International Trade Mart in New Orleans after the war, his private life as a gay businessman and CIA information source, through his arrest, trial, and ongoing litigation that followed him the rest of his life. Impressive in scope and research, it is the only book of its kind on the subject.
