Publisher's Summary

In this memoir, a woman tries to reinvent her life after divorce and discovers that sometimes finding yourself is not all it's cracked up to be.
Trapped in a dissatisfying marriage for nearly a decade, New York journalist Heather Chaplin finally summons the courage to leave. On her own, she finds herself intoxicatingly free, pursuing adventure, and juggling romance on two continents in multiple cities. She contemplates the meaning of life; she falls for a handsome Irishman.
But as the adventures progress, Chaplin's own reckless choices send her spiraling downward - and toward a reckoning she's avoided all her life. Pulled from Chaplin's own diaries, Reckless Years is a raw, propulsive debut: unfailingly profound and impossible to pause.

Critic Reviews

"Shocking, searingly honest, disturbing, brilliantly written. Reading this memoir is like being in a car speeding into an explosion and miraculously coming out the other side. Thank God. It would be awful if a writer this talented hadn't made it." (Delia Ephron, author of Siracusa)
"Reckless Years is a stunningly forensic account of the end of a marriage and its aftermath, which combines the honesty of memoir with the urgency of good fiction and a dry wit that, for all the darkness of the story, makes Chaplin a joy to spend time with." (Emma Brockes, author of She Left Me the Gun)
