Bookmarked: A taste of the 1970s


Editor’s note: The following story contains spoilers for both the novel and the streaming series, “Daisy Jones & The Six.”

“Daisy Jones & The Six” by Taylor Jenkins Reid is a novel with a particularly unique and intriguing style. Reid’s writing is a collection of interviews with members of the band and important figures they encounter throughout their journey. She effortlessly transports readers into the glamorous, illustrious and tumultuous world of 1970s rock and roll.

This story is incredibly immersive and readers cannot help but feel as though they are on the road with the band, listening to their albums on vinyl and feeling the turbulent, ever-changing emotions of the protagonists. The original members of The Six include brothers Billy and Graham, Karen, Warren, Eddie and Pete encounter Daisy Jones when their mutual manager, Teddy Price, suggests a duet. Though both parties were initially reluctant, what transpired was undeniable chemistry between Billy and Daisy, subsequently leading to hit singles, world tours and international fame and renown. 

Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne are continuously juxtaposed, likely as a result of their similar enigmatic personalities and large, impressive egos. They often find themselves fighting for the spotlight, leaving the readers deeply rooting for them at times, and feeling serious frustration towards them at other times. As both a reader and a viewer, I found myself constantly contradicting my own opinion in regard to their turbulent relationship—undoubtedly a result of Jenkin’s profound, complex writing.

Additionally, “Daisy Jones” was adapted into a streaming series on Prime Video earlier this year. Consisting of ten episodes, the series premiered on Mar. 3, and is currently nominated for nine Emmy awards.
