About the Book:

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

For nine years, Jason Priestley played honourable Midwestern transplant Brandon Walsh on Beverly Hills 90210, the popular hit that skyrocketed an unprepared Priestley to fame and made him one of the biggest teen idols of the 1990s. But Priestley's private life was even more compelling than the character he played on TV.

In Jason Priestley: A Memoir, he tells the honest, compelling, and often humorous details of his 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 working actor in the 1980s sharing an apartment with then struggling actor 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 humour about his roller-coaster years before, during, and after living in America's most famous zip code.

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 honed his skills, both in front and behind the camera. 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 avid car-racing enthusiast invites you into his private world for the first time.

With humour, 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 race-car crash at the Kentucky Speedway that nearly took his life. Priestley shares his innermost thoughts about life as a 1990s 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.
