9780062247599: Jason Priestley: A Memoir

Jason Priestley, star of the iconic hit television series Beverly Hills, 90210 and one of the biggest teen idols of the 1990s, chronicles the highs and lows of his life and career in this charming and honest memoir.

The hit Fox show Beverly Hills, 90210 became a cultural touchstone of the 1990s and propelled its young cast to mega-stardom, including Jason Priestley, who played honorable Midwestern transplant Brandon Walsh. Yet despite more than twenty years in and out of the limelight, Priestley has carefully maintained his privacy. In this compelling memoir, the actor, director, and race-car aficionado invites us into his private world for the first time.

With humor, sincerity, and charm, Priestley offers little-known details about his life and stories of his nine years in America’s most famous zip code. He talks candidly about celebrity, marriage, fatherhood, and his passion for car racing. He does not shy away from the devastating lows—his brief jail sentence for drunk driving and the crash at the Kentucky Speedway that nearly took his life. Priestley shares his innermost thoughts about life as a ’90s icon, and goes beyond the Brandon Walsh squeaky-clean image, revealing the tumultuous events that have shaped him, and where he finds his greatest happiness today.

From the Back Cover:

Tales told out of school

Jason Priestley: A Memoir tells the honest, compelling, and often humorous details of Priestley's up-and-down life, from his childhood in Canada to his adult life as a husband and father. Priestley shares his best stories of life as a young, unknown actor and later as a star; some of his compadres were Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, and Ashley Judd, and he divulges never-before-revealed anecdotes about their early days as actors.

But even with his engaging insights and terrific sense of humor, Priestley does not avoid the tough subjects. In 2000, he had a brush with the law and was briefly in jail. His longtime passion for auto racing led to a devastating injury in 2002, during a practice run at the Kentucky Speedway when he crashed his race car into a wall at nearly 190 miles an hour. (Luke Perry, who was—and still is—one of his best friends, rushed to his side after the crash.) Eventually Priestley made a full recovery.

In Jason Priestley: A Memoir, Priestley shares the delights and difficulties of living a real life that is better than any fiction.

From the Back Cover:

Where were you when you discovered life in America's favorite zip code?

For nine years, Jason Priestley was Brandon Walsh on Beverly Hills 90210, the popular hit that skyrocketed an unprepared Priestley to fame and made him the defining face of an era. But Priestley's private life was even more compelling than the character he played on TV. Now, he tells it all—his time on the set of 90210, his brief stint in prison, and, ultimately, his happy marriage and fatherhood.

In Jason Priestley: A Memoir, Priestley tells about his life as a young, unknown working actor sharing an apartment with Brad Pitt, learning the ropes from Johnny Depp, being scolded by Sam Elliott, and being challenged by Shannen Doherty. Always candid, yet never mean-spirited, Priestley talks with wit and humor about his roller-coaster years before, during, and after living in America's most famous zip code.
