THE SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'I LOVE it . . . I can't remember the last time I read a book that was so fun' DOLLY ALDERTON _________________ They were the new icons of rock and roll, fated to burn bright and not fade away. But on 12 July 1979, it all came crashing down. There was Daisy, rock and roll force of nature, brilliant songwriter and unapologetic drug addict, the half-feral child who rose to superstardom. There was Camila, the frontman& #8217 s wife, too strong-willed to let the band implode & #8211 and all too aware of the electric connection between her husband and Daisy. There was Karen, ice-cool keyboardist, a ferociously independent woman in a world that wasn& #8217 t ready for her. And there were the men surrounding them: the feuding, egotistical Dunne brothers, the angry guitarist chafing on the sidelines, the drummer binge-drinking on his boat, the bassist trying to start a family amid a hedonistic world tour. They were creative minds striking sparks from each other, ready to go up in flames. It& #8217 s never just about the music& #8230 _________________ & #8216 Brace for 2019& #8217 s first pop-culture sensation . . . we& #8217 re not exaggerating . . . new obsession, incoming& #8217 TELEGRAPH & #8216 Utterly believable& #8230 fantastically enjoyable& #8217 THE TIMES 'Pitch perfect' SUNDAY TIMES & #8216 Reads like an addictive Netflix documentary meets A Star Is Born & #8211 despite being utterly fictional. It& #8217 s also a call-to-arms that when you find your niche, don& #8217 t doubt, embrace it.& #8217 EMERALD STREET 'The verdict: Daisy Jones steals the limelight& #8230 A zeitgeist book for 2019' STYLIST 'Well observed, sensitively told . . . a great read. ' WILL GOMPERTZ, BBC & #8216 A tremendously engaging, and completely believable tale of rock and roll excess... inventive, persuasive and completely satisfying.& #8217 DYLAN JONES & #8216 I spent a lost weekend in this book. Daisy Jones is an instant icon.& #8217 ERIN KELLY 'DAISY JONES & THE SIX is a transporting novel & #8211 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& #8217 ll never want it to end.' CECILIA AHERN & #8216 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.& #8217 PAUL REES & #8216 So brilliantly written I thought all the characters were real . . . I couldn& #8217 t put it down& #8217 EDITH BOWMAN & #8216 Explosive . . . a gorgeous novel and a ravishing read.& #8217 CHARLOTTE HEATHCOTE, SUNDAY EXPRESS & #8216 Sex, drugs and rock & #8216 n& #8217 roll? You bet, but it& #8217 s Daisy& #8217 s refusal to become a mere muse that powers this buzzy music-industry romance.& #8217 HEPHZIBAH ANDERSON, MAIL ON SUNDAY & #8216 The characters leap off the page, seducing you with their dramas, and making you wish the band was real.& #8217 HEAT & #8216 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.& #8217 ALI LAND, author of Good Me Bad Me
