Levi Johnston Lands Book Deal

Levi Johnston, the man catapulted into the public spotlight after he fathered a child with Bristol Palin, has inked a book deal with Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone imprint. Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs will be published this fall.

Sterling Lord Literistic agent Robert Guinsler negotiated the deal with senior editor Matthew Benjamin. Touchstone publisher Stacy Creamer called it “a sweet and funny book with a touch of irony.”

Johnston had this statement in the release: “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.”
