Told as an oral history, we follow a group of rock stars on the rise in the ’70s and all the glamour and grit that comes with a life filled with sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. The switches in character narratives is clean and purposeful, and each characters has their own unique voice. Taylor Jenkins Reid has written one of the most immersive books I've ever read (I truly could not put it down) and I will eagerly anticipate anything she writes in the future.

Once I started reading this fictionalized rock-n-roll bio, I couldn't stop reading for anything. I was hooked. The story arc of these musicians during the days of stadium rock was incredibly realistic. Even the way the characters talked about building a song seemed true. I fell in love with these beautiful, broken, talented, and obsessed people. Recommended By Tracey T., Powells.com

Everyone knows DAISY JONES & THE SIX, but nobody knows the reason behind their split at the absolute height of their popularity . . . until now.
Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it's the rock 'n' roll she loves most. By the time she's twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.
Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she's pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.
Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.
The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.
"Reid's wit and gift for telling a perfectly paced story make this one of the most enjoyably readable books of the year." Nylon
"Backstage intrigue is the engine of Daisy Jones & The Six. . . . [A] celebration of American mythmaking." Vogue
"Raw, emotive, and addictively voyeuristic, Daisy Jones & The Six is imbued with the same anguished heart that fuels the very best rock 'n' roll. Like my favorite albums, this book will live with me for a very long time." Steven Rowley, author of Lily and the Octopus
