Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Reckless Years is a hair-raising, lyrical, page-turning account of Heather Chaplin's ride into adulthood. It's also an instant classic.” —Darin Strauss, author of HALF A LIFE: A Memoir “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
