Groupies is her debut novel.


Priscus' audacious debut totally rocks--and rolls--in a dazzling story of groupies, and the young woman who is as obsessed with them as she is with grabbing her own star... A devastatingly on-target story about the cost of fame, desire, and drugs... The novel itself is nothing short of superstar.--Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of With or Without You
"A luscious glimpse into the '70s LA music scene--in all its exhilarating, destructive glory. A love letter to a lost time and a lost innocence, Sarah Priscus' dark, glittering debut is irresistible." --Robin Wasserman, author of Mother Daughter Widow Wife and Girls on Fire
What a thrill it is to read Sarah Priscus' 70s rock, California-dreaming Groupies. This shimmering debut is packed with tenderness and awe against a backdrop of drugs, sex, rock stars, and high drama. Faun is a lovable, believable, and wonderfully drawn character who will remain in my heart and mind for a very, very long time.--Jessica Anya Blau, author of Mary Jane
"Sarah Priscus writes like a dream and her candid, fantastic debut had me hooked. An incredibly vivid, evocative portrayal of a young woman drawn into a situation bigger than herself, this book enthralled me from the first sentence to the last. World, watch out for Sarah Priscus! She's gonna be a star."--Elissa R. Sloan, author of The Unraveling of Cassidy Holmes
This dark, absorbing coming-of-age tale, set in the folk-rock scene of the 1970s, captivated me from the very first sentence. With deep intelligence and massive heart, Sarah Priscus captures both the allure of fame and its dangers. I loved her thorny heroine, Faun, and I loved this novel.--Joanna Rakoff, international bestselling author of My Salinger Year and A Fortunate Age
