9781451651652: Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs

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.”

About the Author:

Levi Johnston was born in a tiny Alaskan town perched on the edge of untamed wilderness. Johnston, twenty-one, has been an outdoorsman since he was big enough to hold a fishing rod and aim a rifle. He has worked as an electrician’s apprentice and roustabout in Port Valdez and on Alaska’s North Slope. After his appearance as an honorary Palin family member at the 2008 Republican National Convention, Johnston modeled for Playgirl and was profiled in GQ, Vanity Fair, and New York Magazine and a guest on Today, The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, and Larry King Live. He is the father of a young son, Tripp, and lives in his hometown of Wasilla.

Book Description SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Small town hockey player and Governor Palin s almost son-in-law, Levi Johnston is only seventeen when Palin becomes the vice-presidential nominee. And his dreams of either being a professional hockey player or a back-country guide are permanently derailed when his high school romance becomes the highlight of the 2008 Republican National Convention. Sarah Palin, the former vice-presidential nominee, initially welcomed Levi as her future son-in law, but as her campaign soured so did her feelings towards him. By the time her daughter gave birth to Levi s son, Sarah was out of the race and in full attack mode. Bullied, lied about, and outspent in the courts when he attempts to bond with his new son, this book is Johnston s graceful answer to the woman who him made the most hated man in Alaska. Johnston, ever-honest, had a unique window into Palintology at a critical time; he sat at the kitchen table and paid attention. With a mature perspective and complete frankness, he is ready to bare all in order to clear his name and set the record straight for his son. The result is a humorous, poignant book about a widely misunderstood young man who was thrust into the spotlight and forced to grow up too soon. Bookseller Inventory # FLT9781451651652
