Author’s Note Summary

The first page is an author’s note not from Taylor Jenkins Reid, but rather from the fictional author of this fictional biography. The Author’s Note establishes the goal of the interviews that follow in Chapters 1 to 12 and announces, “This book serves as the first and only time members of the band have commented on their history together.” The author’s note indicates the complexity of the narrative about to unfold, stating, “The truth often lies, unclaimed, in the middle.”

Chapter 1 Summary: “The Groupie Daisy Jones (1965–1972)”

Chapter 1 introduces Daisy Jones, born in 1951 to a British painter and a French model. Daisy grows into a beautiful and lonely young girl, eager for connection. Her desire to be seen is unacknowledged as, according to the author of a biography about Daisy, “there’s no one in her life who is truly interested in who she is, especially not her parents. And it really breaks her. But it is also how she grows up to become an icon. We love broken, beautiful people” (8).

Around 1965, Daisy begins sneaking out of the house to the Sunset Strip, where her looks and ability to charm beyond her years get her into bars and clubs with musicians at age 14.
