Levi Johnston, better known as the father of Bristol Palin’s child, will be signing copies of “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs.”
Get ready to sharpen your talons, Palin fans, because Bristol Palin’s baby daddy Levi Johnston is ready to tell his side of things. Johnston’s new book (and what a delightful cover) hits bookshelves September 20, 2011.
Like the Palin clan, Johnston hails from the tiny Alaskan town of Wasilla. The twenty-one year old dated Bristol for nearly five years, and the couple were briefly engaged twice: the first time after the announcement of Bristol’s pregnancy in 2008, and again briefly in 2010. In August 2010, Johnston announced he’d be running in the October 2011 mayoral race in Wasilla. I guess we’ll have to wait and see…

From the Publisher
Best known as Bristol Palin’s baby daddy and Sarah Palin’s favorite whipping boy, Levi Johnston sets out to clear his name and—with any luck—end his run as Alaska’s most hated man.
Promising hockey player and Governor Palin’s almost son-in-law, Levi Johnston was eighteen when Palin became the vice presidential nominee. His unique place as Bristol’s live-in boyfriend provided him a true insider’s view of what was going on behind closed doors. And how Sarah’s public views were often at odds with her home values. It makes it all the more curious that Sarah eventually turned her anger directly on Levi, after losing her ticket to the White House
After being bullied, lied about, and outspent in the courts when he attempted to bond with his new son, Tripp, Levi Johnston now is ready to set the record straight.
Deer in the Headlights is a poignant, at times very funny, and fascinating tale of a boy thrust into the media spotlight and now figuring out how to be an adult and a dad. Johnston, ever honest, had a unique window into Palintology at a critical time; he sat in the family’s living room and paid attention. Not bitter and never petty, Levi shares his story.
As Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC so aptly put it: “I love that kid. He’s honest, he’s straightforward, he’s not embarrassed.”
