Honorable Mention for the Foreword INDIES Award for Best Autobiography and Memoir

Dark, deviant, and deliriously funny, Jude Angelini writes in the colloquial vein of Charles Bukowski, using his unique, natural voice to tell stories from his life. He writes about his sexual encounters—both strange and intimate—alongside stories from his childhood and his tell-all experiences with “science drugs.” Throughout it all, Jude is critical of himself and his actions, proving himself to be vulnerable, lonely, and extremely relatable. A stellar follow-up to Hyena.

What People Are Saying

"Though it’s fair to compare his work to the likes of Bukowski and Hunter S. Thompson, Hummingbird accomplishes more than resting on the laurels of Jude’s predecessors."
—Prohbtd

"Hummingbird is beautiful and haunting. It is a quick read, but is a book that stays on your mind for a long while afterward."
Biba Adams, All Hip Hop

Praise for Hyena

“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.”
—BuzzFeed Books

"An explicit collection of stories from the host of The All Out Show on Sirius."
—Kirkus Reviews

"The book is funny, vile, sad and shocking. Angelini's style punches you in the face, but makes you see the man underneath the monster, the humanity inside the beast."
—The Detroit News

Well worth it.
A great quick read with lots of grit and insight. If you like Bukowski, Fante, etc you'll dig it.

Wow, Hummingbird! As real as it gets!!
Hummingbird is a great follow-up to Hyena! Got through the entire book in a matter of hours. Just couldn’t pull away. Praises to Jude for just speaking his truth! With all the negatives he’s encountered throughout his life, this book is definitely something to be proud of!
