Publisher's Summary

Hyena is a collection of autobiographical stories by Jude Angelini, which takes the listener on his journey of heartbreak, depravity, and hilarity, deftly moving between his adult life and his childhood growing up in a factory town outside of Detroit. Each story is told with brutal honesty yet maintains a gallows humor that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.

Jude is one of the top hip-hop radio hosts on Sirius Satellite radio. His self-published, print-on-demand edition of Hyena has been an indie best seller, despite having no physical distribution. Its exploration of drugs, sex, and the human condition can be compared to Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson, Artie Lange, and Jim Norton. It also captures the hardscrabble culture, language, and landscape of postindustrial Detroit, from which came some of pop culture's most compelling artists.

Awesome book, would steal it

If you're a fan of his you'll love this. On to hummingbird now. It's making me add more words to submit this review so here I am adding this sentence unnecessarily.

Rude Jude surpasses expectations

Being a listener of the All Out Show on Shade 45 I have heard some Jude's stories.... but this book went beyond that and gave us an inside look to who he really is.

Where does Hyena rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is my first book but it ranks 9 out of 10. The stories were completely different than my experience in life but that is why i wanted to hear it. Jude Angelini is true. Not always right or convenient, or what is normal to normal, but true none the less. If you've lived a follow the rules life, this takes you into something different.

What about Jude Angelini’s performance did you like?

Jude has an voice that is perfect for the stories of his life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Several. The way Jude shows you how his experiences shape his thoughts and actions. It happens to us all.
