“Taylor Jenkins Reid Loves Rock And Roll Couples”
Author Taylor Jenkins Reid admits she’s transfixed by couples that play music together. Sonny and Cher, Lindsey Buckingham And Stevie Nicks, Johnny and June Carter Cash—you get the idea. There’s something about all that creative, emotional and, ultimately, combustible energy between them that really appeals to the Maryland-born novelist. A rabid fan of Fleetwood Mac, Jenkins Reid’s new book Daisy Jones And The Six tells the story of a Fleetwood Mac-like outfit who mysteriously quit at the height of their fame. Told in an oral history format, the book finds all of the members recounting the band’s rise to the top and sudden vanishing act. The catch? Nobody seems to remember things happening in the same way. It’s like Rumors meets Rashomon meets vH1-‘s Behind The Music. In this episode, which was recorded live in front of a packed house at Oakland’s A Great Good Place For Books, Jenkins Reid talks about her love of Fleetwood Mac, discovering The Kinks, and why she tries to write a book a year. She also talks about getting Benjamin Bratt and Judy Greer for the audio book, Reese Witherspoon buying the rights to the book before it was even released and what to expect in the upcoming HBO series and being nostalgic for a time she never experienced.
