Winner of this year’s Goodreads Choice Award for Historical Fiction, Daisy Jones & the Six rewinds the clock to the ’60s and ’70s, then zeroes in on the wild world of American rock and roll music. Author Taylor Jenkins Reid conjures vivid imagery by using the oral history format to provide a collage effect with multiple overlapping viewpoints. As another veteran of the era once observed, rock and roll never forgets.
