Ronald Reagan, Fiction and Faction

     From Athens, Greece, Harry Papasotiriou rightly points out that fiction is an appeal to the popular reader. He says:
     The Morris "biography" of Ronald Reagan constitutes one of the greatest missed opportunities in biographical historiography in our times. Mr. Morris chose immediate popular readership over lasting influence. He could have written the definitive provisional (until the archives open) biography of Reagan, and opted instead for a "popular history" approach that is not even reliable history. Ronald Reagan deserves better.
