Daisy Jones & The Six

Ballantine Books

A novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer. Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the reason behind their split at the absolute height of their popularity . . . until now.

In L.A. in the late sixties, Daisy sneaks into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeps with rock stars, but it’s the rock and 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.

“Beautifully layered and complex . . . Daisy and the band captured my heart.”
Reese Witherspoon
