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.

Voyeuristic observation of self loathing and self destruction

Brutally honest and at times hard to listen to, but Angelini’s voice and narrative is too engaging to look away. Each anecdote at first seem unconnected but pieces together smoothly as the book continues.

Rochester to Spokane

So I’m on a trip across the us to go party with my best friend and Purple Heart recipient. And all I can think of is how he needs to hear these stories. Been through a lot myself in my 35 years. Can’t wait to share this with my friends. After hearing I’m going to get hummingbird. Tales of real life. Doesn’t get any better. Just made me prepared to do what I gotta do and not be scared. Thanks Jude

Honest words

I’ve been listening to The All Out Show for about ten years now. I’ve always enjoyed Jude’s approach to volatile situations and his ability to admit mistakes. He’s willing to learn. And he has a lot to teach.
It’s well worth a listening if only to appreciate the effort taken to get from here to there and back again; even if that’s not the end of the trip.

I thought my life was crazy

I thought my life was crazy until I peered into Jude'd life. It is also a relief to know someone can do so many drugs and still be a functioning celebrity.

Compelling, submersive.

Jude did his thing. His stories give an in depth look into his life. You can feel the pain in his voice when he talks about heartache. Love it.
