by jude angelini

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.

THIS LIMITED EDITION ITEM IS SOLD OUT. Now available as an exclusive pre-orderHummingbird is the long-awaited follow-up to "Rude" Jude Angelini's bestselling collection of autobiographical stories that are dark, deviant, and deliriously funny. Writing in a colloquial vein that's not unlike a Charles Bukowski of today, Angelini uses his unique natural voice to tell stories from his life: sexual encounters—both strange and intimate—alongside stories from his childhood, and tell-all experiences with "science drugs." Throughout it all, though, Angelini is as critical of himself and his actions as others are of him, proving himself to be quite vulnerable, lonely, and extremely relatable.
