Inside, Outside by Herman Wouk
Inside, Outside is a 1985 Herman Wouk novel telling the story of four generations of a Russian Jewish family and its travails in Russia and America. The book is a first person narrative told from the viewpoint of Israel David Good kind, the third of the four generations in the book. Good kind works in a minor bureaucratic post in the White House between March and October 1973; his insignificance gives him time to write his memoirs while his position gives him opportunities to come face to face with the harried President Richard Nixon. Nixon is never actually named in the book, but there can be no doubt as to his identity. The narrative refers explicitly to the Watergate scandal, as an event contemporaneous with Good kind's employment in the White House.
