Stuccoville: Life Without a Net

Radke’s writing talents shine through with a uniqueness of character, personality, and style […] If you like memoirs that take you inside the author’s heart and mind but deliver a message that will connect with your spirit and make you think about life journeys, you will enjoy Stuccoville. Tammy Ruggles, Readers’ Favorite.

Kafka said that a book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us. Chuck Radke‚Äôs stirring, at times heartbreaking memoir, Stuccoville: Life Without a Net, is such an axe. When I finished reading, I was in tears. –John Dufresne,

This is a really beautiful book: wise, kind, generous and sometimes heartbreaking.
–Steve Yarbrough,
