This is not a book for the faint of heart. Much like Charles Bukowski, Jude writes with an uncensored brutality that'll make you squirm. The main difference is when Bukowski is talking about drinking wine and smoking cigarettes, Jude is talking about drinking whiskey and doing much harder drugs.
That being said, it's not a book about drugs. It's more a book about understanding the difference between being down on your luck, and being completely and unconditionally screwed. (Which tends to be a theme.) Life can beat you to the ground and kick you over and over again. Jude is here to show us the worst of his hard times, and teach us that things always get better.
Anyway, I loved every cringe-worthy word. Even though his stories will break your heart, I think you'd like it too.

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.
