For this month we’ve chosen Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
Everybody knows Daisy Jones and the Six.
From the moment Daisy walked barefoot on to the stage at the Whisky, she and the band were a sensation. Their sound defined an era. Their albums were on every turntable. They sold out arenas from coast to coast.
This is the story of their incredible rise: the desire, the rivalry – and the music.
Then, on 12 July 1979, Daisy Jones and the Six split up.
Nobody knew why. Until now…
Here are the reviews for Daisy Jones and the Six:
“Daisy Jones and 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
“So brilliantly written I thought all the characters were real . . . I couldn’t put it down.” Edith Bowman
“Utterly believable . . . fantastically enjoyable.” The Times
