Which president was the topic of the book? If Richard Nixon, there are several book titles with the phrase The President's Men included.

If another president, let us know so we can narrow down the search. If you can provide a little bit about the book, that would help too.

Good Morning Butrflynet, I should, perhaps, mentioned that this is a quiz question and I have submitted it as given. Beginning to wonder whether it may be a woman writing as a man! Thanks for your interest.

What's the nature of the quiz, or what class is it for? Can you relay the question exactly as written? If it is for a class, which presidency have you been studying lately? That will give some clues to go on.

No luck finding anything. It must be an extremely obscure book or there is an error in the question.

I checked Amazon and my local county library's online catalog. Not going to spend anymore time on it, sorry.

Here's what I found in case anything looks possible:

Would you be willing to accept The President's Child by Fay Weldon? It was written in 1982 and is as close to your title as I could get.

Thank you Butrflynet for your time, I was just about to post to you that I was thinking of going for Fay Weldon's The President's Child, published 1982, hoping that the Quiz setter had made a mistake, when Sturgis replied. So, I think I will stick with that.
Many thanks to you both for helping.

Many thanks Sturgis. I will be going with Fay Weldon as I am pretty sure there is an error in the question, as I have been looking for a few days now and enough is enough.
