Levi Johnston is undoubtedly one of the most important Americans of our time (or at least as important as Kendra Wilkinson) so we're surprised it's taken him this long to score a book deal. Finally we'll get to learn a little about the man behind the Playgirl photos in his upcoming memoir Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs. Incredibly, we did not make that up!
Stacy Creamer, vice president of Touchstone Publishing says:
"This is a sweet and funny book with a touch of irony; a fascinating tale of a misunderstood boy figuring out how to be a man and a father after being thrust into the spotlight and subsequent media circus at a very young and vulnerable age. Levi has seen the Palin family up close and personal and is ready to tell his story."
Levi adds in a statement he definitely wrote himself:
"I want to tell the truth about my close relationship with the Palins… my sense of Sarah, and my perplexing fall from grace — how I feel and what I've learned. I'm doing this for me, for my boy Tripp and for the country."
You see, Levi's doing this for the red, white, and blue! Unfortunately, quite a few of these colors don't read, but we Americans will look forward to hearing all about the contents of this gripping political memoir on Access Hollywood.
