With 2012 around the corner, Palin tell-alls hit all time high

Posted by loricalabrese on April 30, 2011

If any are hoping Sarah Palin will announce her run for president in 2012, it’s definitely the authors of some forthcoming Sarah Palin exposes that will hit bookstores this summer and fall, including one written by none other than Levi Johnston.

That’s right, Johnston refuses to go away and the Simon & Schuster imprint, Touchstone Publishing has signed a deal with the father of Sarah Palin’s grandson announcing on Monday that they’ll release his memoir this fall titled, “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs.”

“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 about what I learned,” Johnston said in a press release. “I’m doing this for me, for my boy Tripp and for the country.”

“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 father after being thrust into the spotlight and subsequent media circus at a very young and vulnerable age,” said Stacy Creamer, vice president at Touchstone.

Beating Johnston to the punch, however, is Bristol Palin, who also has a memoir coming out titled, “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far,” which will be released on June 21, the only title out of this list that we can expect to portray the Palins in a positive light.

Some Palin tell-alls to hit shelves soon are…

1. The Lies of Sarah Palin: The Untold Story Behind Her Relentless Quest for Power
by Geoffrey Dunn
Geoffrey Dunn, a senior correspondent for Metro Newspapers in California and a regular contributor to the San Francisco Chronicle and Huffington Post, writes what is being dubbed as “the first full-scale and in-depth political biography of the controversial Republican vice-presidential candidate and former governor of Alaska.”

From the synopsis: “Based on more than two-hundred interviews—many of them with Republican colleagues and one-time political allies of Palin’s—and more than forty-thousand pages of uncovered documents, Dunn chronicles Palin’s troubling penchant for duplicity in grim detail, from her dysfunctional childhood in Wasilla through her contentious run for mayor and her failed governorship of Alaska. He also provides the shocking inside story of her betrayal of running mate John McCain during the 2008 presidential campaign and her self-serving resignation as governor in July of the following year. Dunn deftly places Palin in the American tradition of right-wing demagogues—from Huey Long to Joe McCarthy—and details her troubling obsession with Barack Obama as it fuels her own political ambitions and a potential run for the presidency in 2012.”

Release date: May 10 by St. Martin’s Press

2. Blind Allegiance by Frank Bailey and Jeanne Devon
Frank Bailey, former Palin aide, teams up with Jeanne Devon, the founder of the anti-Palin political blog, The Mudflats to write Blind Allegiance.

From the synopsis: “This explosive, up-close view of Sarah Palin comes from an inner-circle confidant who shares surprising information about how Sarah dealt with staff and perceived “enemies,” and the discrepancy between what she said and what she did.”

Release date: May 24 by Howard Books

3. The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, by Joe McGinniss
We all witnessed the depths author Joe McGinniss was willing to sink to when he moved next door to the Palins last summer in an effort to research his book, “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin.”

From the synopsis: “Based on McGinniss’s on-the-ground reporting that began in late 2008 (which yielded an April 2009 Conde NastPortfolio cover story) and continued with his return to Alaska in 2010, this book is a startling and penetrating examination of the illusion and reality of Palin–and a probing look at the Alaska and the America that have produced her, and the country she feels she is destined to lead. The Rogue delves deeply into Alaska’s political and business affairs and Palin’s political, personal, and family life to chronicle how and to what extent Palin and her beliefs, attitudes, and outlook will influence and even change life in America and the perception of America abroad.”

Release date: Sept. 20 by Crown Books
