Staff Reviews

After breaking up with her husband, Chaplin dashes from New York, Dublin, and California, seeking thrills, sex, dancing, and drugs. When the excitement lags, she must face haunting memories of a failed marriage, a rickety relationship with the one boyfriend she might actually love, and unresolved anger at her long-absent father. — Mike Hare

— Simon & Schuster


In this page-turning 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 put down.
