Man Of A Million Fragments: The True Story Of Clay Shaw, A Biography Of Clay Shaw, Doing Quite Well

Man of a Million Fragments: The True Story of Clay Shaw, my full-length biography of Clay Shaw, is doing very well. It has been clawing its way up from ground zero, and March was one of its best month since the e-book first appeared in late May 2013. The print edition came out in late July, 2014, and added a new dimension to its availability.

It generated some new favorable reviews this year, and continues to generate excellent reviews from those who really know anything about Clay Shaw and his era, the city of New Orleans and the international trade effort there in the 1940s through the 1970s.

Of course, it tends to generate negative buzz from those who object to some of its contents, even tiny portions of the book, and its overall conclusions, such as they are, but that is fair as well. No one who undertakes a project dealing with Clay Shaw can ever expect to have 100% positive response. but overall, it continues to find its audience, with a minimum of publicity and a maximum of good word of mouth.
