Daisy Jones and The Six

The must-read bestselling novel




'I devoured this in a day, falling head over heels for Daisy and the band.' Reese Witherspoon

THE SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

'I LOVE it . . . I can't remember the last time I read a book that was so fun' DOLLY ALDERTON

Taylor Jenkins Reid's new novel MALIBU RISING is out now!
____________________________________
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...

With Daisy Jones, Taylor Jenkins Reid has conjured up a legend both on the page and off. A zeitgeist book for 2019, read it before the series becomes the next must-see.

Stylist

Fascinating . . . you can't wait to find out what happens next . . . Everyone should read this.

Claudia Winkleman, RADIO 2

It's as if a woman wrestled the narrative from Almost Famous, drenched it in sunshine, sex and tequila, then left it for us to read on a rainy Sunday.

Grazia

Chances are that by the end of the year you'll want to track down Daisy's music and play it, even though the fabulous 1970s songbird never existed.

Writing Magazine

[T]his absorbing novel is full of irresistible characters, and brilliantly evokes its time and place. It's my favourite novel of the year.

Charlotte Heathcote FICTION OF THE YEAR, Daily Mirror

Unique, inventive and stylish...It's exciting and intoxicating, and I loved the effortlessly cool Daisy Jones. It is a novel I'll revisit regularly.

Zoe West, BOOKS OF THE YEAR, Woman & Home

I totally fell for Taylor Jenkins Reid's engaging recreation of the 70s rock 'n' roll scene . . . this novel has a lot of heart.

Joanne Finney BEST READS OF 2019, Good Housekeeping

It's mostly set in the Seventies, an era that Jenkins Reid conjures like a Tarantino film. The counterculture, the drugs, the parties, the promiscuity, the terrible relationships. It's also about how some people can be stars, and others can't, and the addictive lure of fame. Jenkins Reid has arranged this as an oral history, so we see the story of the band's rise to excess from many points of view. You keep wondering: how far can this go? How crazy will things get? This is the Seventies. Pretty crazy. Hugely readable.

Evening Standard

I completely forgot that Daisy Jones and The Six was a fictional book and not a real story. The cast of characters with different narrators portraying them made it feel so real. One of my favourite audiobooks of all time.
