Daisy Jones & The Six: A Novel

We rated this book:


Fans of music, especially 1970s rock, and celebrity drama will love to obsess over Taylor Jenkins Reid’s latest novel. On the verge of true success following her first album, Daisy Jones is a gorgeous and fascinating singer-songwriter with strong opinions and a serious drug addiction. At the same time, The Six has also been gaining attention following their first album and national tour. While working on their sophomore album, band leader Billy Dunne was encouraged by his close friend and trusted producer to transform one of his songs into a duet with Daisy. Controlling Billy reluctantly agrees. The song becomes a major hit that ultimately leads to The Six inviting Daisy to join the band, despite Billy’s reservations. But Daisy Jones & The Six will only release one album before their notorious split on tour in 1979.

The story behind the band’s sudden break-up is both high-spirited and deeply emotional. Reid pieces together invented interview excerpts to achieve a cohesive account that flows easily. Her characters, lyrics, and music are so magnificently imagined that it’s a shame Daisy Jones & The Six are fictitious. But fret not, the band’s music will eventually come alive in a thirteen-episode series co-produced by Reese Witherspoon and Amazon Studios. For now, readers can listen to Random House’s enjoyable Spotify playlist inspired by the irresistible novel.
