Jude Angelini – Hyena Audiobook

Hyena, originally self-published, then reissued by Simon & Shuster’s Gallery Books imprint, is now available as an unabridged, 44 track, four-hour long audiobook read by the author himself. The audiobook features 1 unreleased chapter plus original artwork by artist Sage Vaughn.

Released by Big Wheel Recreation, Hyena is the first release in over a decade from the iconic indie label, known for breaking the careers of Jimmy Eat World, The Hives, and At the Drive-In.Jude’s autobiographical short stories take you 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 retains a no-bullshit amount of gallows humor that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.

Earlier this year Hyena was optioned by Stephen Levinson and Mark Wahlberg’s Leverage Management (Entourage, Ballers, Boardwalk Empire) for an HBO comedy project, which the author is presently co-writing. “It’s been crazy,” says Jude. “I have been going from the recording studio working on the audiobook, to Sirius to do my daily radio show, and then to these writing sessions for the HBO show.”
The Hyena audiobook is available for download now, exclusively at HyenaGoHard.com.
