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.

I can relate.

This book has to be one of the most interesting pieces of reading material up ever read. Growing up in California we grew up in the era of the gang bang. I sat back Listening to you describe the scenarios and I thought to myself this dude took a page out of my book! Good shit man about to listen to hummingbird

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.

HYENA By Mr Jude Anthony Angelini

What a great Read, and Hilarious to-boot It certainly had me gripped,
Lots of funny tales of Sex Drugs & Rock N' Roll., I just Love Jude's Voice so the fact that Mr Angelini Wrote and Narrated his own stories makes it so much more real.
If you really want to listen to a young man growing up in tough Industrial Pontiac Michigan and making his way out on his own terms, then look no further, this is a Blast,, also Sad and educating at the same time,
Once you have read this book (or listened to it) Grab a copy of Hummingbird by Jude, Its even Better (in my opinion)
Well Done Judey

Insanely dark, devilishly hilarious, wickedly real

Down the rabbit hole you go, as if hunter s Thompson rode through with the hell’s angels and fear and loathing in Las Vegas all at the same time. From bustos to shream happenings. Wouldn’t miss a second. You’ll listen on repeat!

hilarious, insightful and sad

This was a funny, light hearted yet heavy book. He is broken in areas yet aware of his flaws and what he needs to do to change but had no willingness at this point to do the work to get there.

A serious journey

Jude is able to make light of many situations while also explaining the reality he lived through. It’s a roller coaster of a ride with no filter. A plus is that he narrates it himself. Would recommend

Loved his books

I listen to Jude on Shade 45 every morning on the way home from work. His stories of life are crazy! When I found out he wrote a book I had to pick it up. Once I found out he narrated the book himself, I had to pick that up as well. The stories are random stories of his life. From hard time to good times. I greatly enjoyed it!
