Hyena is a collection of autobiographical stories by Jude Angelini, which takes the reader 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 bestseller, despite having no ebook or physical distribution. Its exploration of drugs, sex, and the human condition compares to Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson, Artie Lange, and Jim Norton. It also captures the hardscrabble culture, language, and landscape of post-industrial Detroit, from which came some of pop culture’s most compelling artists.

    I have heard so much about this book. I recently started listening to the all out show & I absolutely fell in love with the show!!!! since his second book will be coming out soon I decided to get caught up on this book. I'm glad I purchased it. Literally kept my attention throughout. I'm sad that I have to wait til September for the new book.

    I couldn't put it down. Literally consumed my free time until I read the entire book. I couldn't wait to see what the next page held. It was hilarious and heart breaking at the same time. The most relatable thing I've ever read.
  • Worst Book Ever

    By SaneMan!
    wrtitten like a 3rd rate Bukowski, if Bukowski has fried all his brain cells from smoking crack since infancy.
  • Best read in years

    By JohnFromHouston
    I hear Jude's voice as I burn through the book which makes it that much more entertaining. I finished this book in about a day and a half. I'm proud to be a listener and a fan of his. One of the most genuine appreciative people you will meet. This is a great read for anyone who has dabbled in craziness and lived the life. Cover to cover or open to a random page it's entertaining. Great work Jude. Thanks !
