Everybody knows Daisy Jones and the Six.
From the moment Daisy walked barefoot on to the stage at the Whisky, she and the band were a sensation. Their sound defined an era. Their albums were on every turntable. They sold out arenas from coast to coast.
This is the story of their incredible rise- the desire, the rivalry - and the music.
Then, on 12 July 1979, Daisy Jones and the Six split up.
Nobody knew why. Until now...
Escape to a world of joy, sun and hedonism - read the novel everyone is talking about.
'Reads like an addictive Netflix documentary meets A Star Is Born - despite being utterly fictional. It's also a call-to-arms that when you find your niche, don't doubt, embrace it.' EMERALD STREET
‘I devoured Daisy Jones & The Six in a day, falling head over heels for it. Taylor Jenkins Reid transported me into the magic of the 70’s music scene in a way I’ll never forget. The characters were beautifully layered and complex...Daisy and the band captured my heart, and they’re sure to capture yours too.’ REESE WITHERSPOON
'I LOVE it . . . I can't remember the last time I read a book that was so fun' DOLLY ALDERTON
‘Taylor Jenkins Reid has written a stylish and propulsive if sometimes sentimental novel set against that backdrop, in the stadiums, studios and pool houses of late-1970s L.A…easily her most sophisticated and ambitious novel… In the end, that’s the most surprising gift of Daisy Jones & The Six – it’s a way to love the rock n roll of the 1970s, without apology, without cynicism, bell-bottoms and all.’ NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
‘A deep dive into the best band you’ve never heard of.’ MARIE CLAIRE
‘As a writer, you try to stay in your own lane. Every now and then you come across a book and think 'I wish I had thought of that.' Daisy Jones & The Six is the first book I've read where I thought 'I wish I were cool enough to write that.' Raw, emotive and addictively voyeuristic, Daisy Jones is imbued with the same anguished heart that fuels the very best rock and roll. Like my favorite albums, this book will live with me for a very long time.’ STEVEN ROWLEY, AUTHOR OF LILY AND THE OCTOPUS
‘Daisy Jones & The Six is an explosive, dynamite, down-and-dirty look at a fictional rock band told in an interview style that gives it irresistible surface energy...although the real power of this delicious novel is at its tender beating heart. It’s an anthem and a ballad and a marvel.’ ELIN HILDERBRAND, AUTHOR OF THE PERFECT COUPLE
'Once in a blue moon you get to discover a book you end up pressing upon many other people to read. Taylor Jenkins Reid has got every nuance, every detail exact and right. I loved every word.' PAUL REES
'A tremendously engaging, and completely believable tale of rock and roll excess... inventive, persuasive and completely satisfying.' DYLAN JONES
'So brilliantly written I thought all the characters were real . . . I couldn't put it down' EDITH BOWMAN
'I spent a lost weekend in this book. Daisy Jones is an instant icon.' ERIN KELLY
'DAISY JONES & THE SIX is a transporting novel - at once a love story, a glimpse into the combustible inner workings of a rock-and-roll band, and a pitch-perfect recreation of the music scene of the Fleetwood Mac era. You'll never want it to end.' CECILIA AHERN
'Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll? You bet, but it's Daisy's refusal to become a mere muse that powers this buzzy music-industry romance.' HEPHZIBAH ANDERSON, MAIL ON SUNDAY
'The characters leap off the page, seducing you with their dramas, and making you wish the band was real.' HEAT
'Utterly believable . . . fantastically enjoyable' THE TIMES
'The heady haze of the 70s music scene, and a perfectly flawed Daisy, combine to create a fresh, rock n roll read. I loved it.' ALI LAND, author of Good Me Bad Me
