On the Outside Looking In by Michael Reagan

Here is perhaps the most revealing autobiography written during the Reagan years. On the Outside Looking In is the poignant and compelling story of Michael Reagan, the President's oldest son. Adopted at birth by Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman, Michael Reagan appeared to have everything going for him as a child of one of Hollywood's leading men and an academy-award-winning actress. Surrounded by film stars and a life of luxury, the world could have been his for the taking. But his parents' divorce when he was only three, and the revelation shortly thereafter that he was adopted, plunged Michael into an abyss of despair. Tormented by misconceptions about his adoption, boarded out at school when he entered first grade, seeing his parents on television or on the cinema screen more often than in person, and with no one to talk to, Michael has carried a tragic secret with him all his life. Here, in On the Outside Looking In, he unburdens himself at long last. He writes about his deep love for his father; gives us a candid, off-screen look at his mother, Jane Wyman; and reveals the truth about his relationships with his sister, Maureen, and his step-mother, Nancy Reagan. From the glamour of Hollywood to the brink of bankruptcy; from the drudgery of the campaign trail to the thrill of inauguration, from the Governor's Mansion to the White House, Michael Reagan has lived a life of fear and self-punishment.
