*Soon to be a major US TV series, by the producers of Entourage* 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 hardscrabble culture, language, and landscape of post-industrial Detroit, from which came some of pop cultureas most compelling artists. Each story is told with brutal honesty, yet maintains a gallows humour that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.Shirt aina#39;t tucked right, eye makeupa#39;s smeared, haira#39;s a mess. Shea#39;s telling me about sofrito. Some rockabilly Mexicans are posted up on a Honda Accord listening to Morrissey, eating tacos, eyeballing us. I look back at a#39;em; Ia#39;m still high.
