    When Ronald Reagan moved into the White House in 1981, one of his first literary guests was Edmund Morris, the Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer of Theodore Roosevelt. Morris developed a fascination for the genial yet inscrutable president and, after Reagan's landslide reelection in 1984, put aside the second volume of his life of Roosevelt to become an observing eye and ear at the White House. Coming and going with Reagan's benign approval, Morris found the president to be a man of extraordinary power and mystery.

    Would you try another book from Edmund Morris and/or Edmund Morris?

    Absolutely not. I knew from interviews with Edmund Morris that he was an egotistical, self absorbed tragic character, but this book was over the top.


    Has Dutch: A Memoir of Ronald Reagan turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Edmund Morris’s performance?

    I understand what he was attempting in his technique of putting himself in the story but it is confusing. The sound effects were distracting and annoying. Then another narrator chimes in for a little while, then back tot he circus. Very choppy, annoying and un-listenable.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really
