Review: American Grotesque: An Account of the Clay Shaw-Jim Garrison Affair in the City of New Orleans

User Review  - Jim Iverson - Goodreads

I gave this book one star on the basis of some of the content being entertaining and even informative. That being said this book is NOT to be taken seriously. The author makes it clear he is biased and is merely cooking up a hack job in favor of Shaw. Read full review
