Waterstones Says

A mesmeric novel of fame, love, music and what happens when luck runs out and the lights go down, Daisy Jones & The Six tells the story of the stratospheric rise of a band whose sound defined an era and whose sudden, cataclysmic split left a trail of unanswered questions in its wake. Intoxicatingly written, with a cast of characters to instantly fall for, it’s a nostalgia-fuelled trip into the heady world of 70's L.A. at its hedonistic peak.

 

For a while, Daisy Jones & The Six were everywhere. Their albums were on every turntable, they sold out arenas from coast to coast, their sound defined an era. And then, on 12 July 1979, they split. Nobody ever knew why. Until now.

They were lovers and friends and brothers and rivals. They couldn't believe their luck, until it ran out. This is their story of the early days and the wild nights, but everyone remembers the truth differently.

The only thing they all know for sure is that from the moment Daisy Jones walked barefoot, on to the stage at the Whisky, the band were irrevocably changed. Making music is never just about the music. And sometimes it can be hard to tell where the sound stops and the feelings begin.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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

'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

'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

'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

'So brilliantly written I thought all the characters were real... I couldn't put it down' - Edith Bowman

'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 

'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 pitch-perfect exercise in sense of period and rock-bio plausibility.' - The Sunday Times

'By the end of Daisy Jones & the Six you want to go and listen to all the mellow classics by the 1970s soft-rock band of the title, which is difficult because they don’t exist.' - Stylist
