Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
To Be Published: March 7, 2019
In 1979, Daisy Jones and The Six split up. Together, they had redefined the 70’s music scene, creating an iconic sound that rocked the world. Apart, they baffled a world that had hung on their every verse.
This book is an attempt to piece together a clear portrait of the band’s rise to fame and their abrupt and infamous split. The following oral history is a compilation of interviews, emails, transcripts, and lyrics, all pertaining to the personal and professional lives of the members of the band The Six and singer Daisy Jones.
While I have aimed for a comprehensive and exhaustive approach, I must acknowledge that full and complete accounts from all parties involved has proved impossible. Some people were easier to track down than others, some were more willing to talk than others, and some, unfortunately, have passed on.
All of which is to say that while this is the first and only authorised account from all represented perspectives, it should be noted that, in matters both big and small, reasonable people disagree.
The truth often lies, unclaimed, in the middle. [summary from Goodreads]
Honestly, I don’t even need to read the summary anymore to know that if there’s a new Taylor Jenkins Reid book coming out, it will be at the top of my TBR. I have loved every book she has written so far, which is a rare feat. Although they are all very different, and this newest story is very unique still, her writing is gorgeous and impactful every time.
Pre-ordering REALLY helps authors by creating demand for their work and increasing their first week sales. I really encourage you to pre-order if this sounds like something you want to read! To be perfectly honest, while I absolutely love supporting indie bookstores, I usually pre-order from Amazon because they guarantee that you will get the lowest price the book hits between the date you pre-order and the release date. Plus, they don’t charge you until the item ships, making it super easy to support the author without spending a bunch of money upfront!
