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

EVERYONE KNOWS DAISY JONES AND THE SIX.

They sold out arenas from coast to coast.

Their music defined an era and every girl in America idolised Daisy.

But on July 12 1979, on the night of the final concert of the Aurora tour, they split. Nobody ever knew why. Until now.

This is the whole story, right from the beginning: the sun-bleached streets, the grimy bars on the Sunset Strip, knowing Daisy’s moment was coming. Relive the euphoria of success and experience the terror that nothing will ever be as good again. Take the uppers so you can keep on believing, take the downers so you can sleep, eventually. Wonder who you are without the drugs or the music or the fans or the family that prop you up. Make decisions that will forever feel tough. Find beauty where you least expect it. Most of all, love like your life depends on it and believe in whatever it is you’re fighting for.

It’s a true story, though everyone remembers the truth differently.

“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

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

Dolly Alderton, The High Low

Utterly believable . . . fabulously entertaining

Will Hodgkinson, The Times

part juicy celebrity tell-all, part A Star Is Born . . . Be prepared to read it in a single night

Vogue, Best New Books 2019

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

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.

Dylan Jones

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

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

Emily Giffin

I spent a lost weekend in this book. Daisy Jones is an instant icon.

Erin Kelly

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

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

Heat

So brilliantly written I thought all the characters were real . . . I couldn’t put it down

Edith Bowman

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

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

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.

Emerald Street

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

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

Prepare to be obsessed

Stylist

Brilliantly gripping

Reader's Digest

With wonderfully layered and complex characters, Reid’s latest novel is brilliantly written and hard to put down

Psychologies

Utterly refreshing - and too charming not to love

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.
