What: “Daisy Jones & The Six” by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Why: This novel is a complicated narrative that gives an insider’s perspective to the ’70s rock scene. Most bands don’t fail, they break up, and Reid shows readers exactly how it happens. Loaded with plenty of drugs and the antics that accompany stardom’s excesses, readers won’t be disappointed. I really felt that the mystery of inspiration and muse come through as the artistic process unfolds for the two main characters, Billy and Daisy. But egos and passions steer this boat toward the rocks too many times to count, leaving you wondering how long they can keep it all afloat.
