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 childhood growing up in a factory town outside of Detroit. 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 hard scrabble culture, language, and landscape of post-industrial Detroit, from which came some of pop culture's most compelling artists. Each story is told with brutal honesty, yet maintains a gallows humour that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.
