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.
