A thrilling story told in the form of an extended oral history, Daisy Jones and the Six transports the reader to the world of '70's rock 'n roll; creative chaos, musical alchemy and an iconic sound.

'I LOVE it . . . I can't remember the last time I read a book that was so fun' DOLLY ALDERTON_________________
They were the new icons of rock and roll, fated to burn bright and not fade away.
But on 12 July 1979, it all came crashing down.


There was Daisy, rock and roll force of nature, brilliant songwriter and unapologetic drug addict, the half-feral child who rose to superstardom.

There was Camila, the frontman’s wife, too strong-willed to let the band implode – and all too aware of the electric connection between her husband and Daisy.

There was Karen, ice-cool keyboardist, a ferociously independent woman in a world that wasn’t ready for her.

And there were the men surrounding them: the feuding, egotistical Dunne brothers, the angry guitarist chafing on the sidelines, the drummer binge-drinking on his boat, the bassist trying to start a family amid a hedonistic world tour. They were creative minds striking sparks from each other, ready to go up in flames.

It’s never just about the music…

I devoured DAISY JONES AND 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

The plot of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel about a fictional Seventies band might best be described as part juicy celebrity tell-all, part A Star Is Born . . . Be prepared to read it in a single night

Taylor Jenkins Reid is a stunning writer whose characters are unforgettable and whose stories are deeply emotional. Her new book is her most gripping yet

Utterly believable . . . fabulously entertaining

Will Hodgkinson, The Times

A tremendously engaging, and completely believable tale of rock and roll excess, one made all the more enjoyable by being written as an oral biography. It’s inventive, persuasive and completely satisfying.

Claudia Winkleman, RADIO 2

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

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.

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

The characters leap off the page, seducing you with their dramas, and making you wish the band was real. Five stars.

Heat

Brace for 2019’s first pop-culture sensation . . . we’re not exaggerating . . . new obsession, incoming . . . If you liked Almost Famous, you’ll love it.

Stella Magazine, Telegraph

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.

A book that 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.

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.
