A collection of autobiographical essays similar to Bukowski. Darkly comical tales of sex, drugs, and Detroit. — From Jack's Top Ten Books of 2014
A collection of autobiographical stories, told with brutal honesty and dark humor, from one of the top hip-hop radio hosts on SiriusXM.
Taking you on a journey of heartbreak, depravity, and hilarity, Hyena deftly moves between Jude Angelini’s adult life to his childhood growing up in a factory town outside of Detroit. Exploring drugs, sex, and the human condition, these stories also captures the hardscrabble culture, language, and landscape of post-industrial Detroit, from which came some of pop culture’s most compelling artists.
About the Author
Jude Angelini was born and raised in Pontiac, Michigan. He got his start as a guest and comic on The Jenny Jones Show and now hosts his own show, The All Out Show, on Sirius Satellite Radio. He loves reading Elmore Leonard, science fiction, and medieval fantasy, as well as antiquing and playing a good game of backgammon. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
“Angelini’s book is like a mix of Charles Bukowski and Hunter S. Thompson, chronicling a whirlwind of belligerent wild tribulations all his own…You won’t be able to put it down, and you will come out understanding and understood.”
