Unidentified man at left of photo, by Jeff Bursey
10€ 282 page pocketbook
“Jeff Bursey tries his hardest to ruin a perfectly good novel about life in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, with all sorts of postmodern hijinks, but thankfully fails. While I wouldn’t go so far as to say he does for c-town what Joyce did for Dublin, he does more for it than Joyce ever did. The inexplicably titled Unidentified man at left of photo is Bursey’s most entertaining novel yet.” —Steven Moore, author of The Novel: An Alternative History
“I’m telling you now, Bursey, you use more than one paragraph of this letter of complaint to promote that nit-picking piece of crap you call a book and every page of my next book will be an excoriating explication of your entire oeuvre.”—Wayne Johnston, author of The Mystery of Right and Wrong
“Bursey has written a satire of PEI life that’s both under-developed and over-exposed. Mine is called The Crack in Everything or The Island Gospel According to Samson Grief and is so much better.”—Steve Mayoff, author of Our Lady of Steerage
Unidentified man at left of photo, a fill-in-the-blanks novel mercifully free from characters to warm to and without tiresome plot points to retain, features artistic foibles, domestic strife, questions galore, a catastrophic hurricane, and a narrative voice that veers from mean to genial as it explores whatever topics come to mind and spills into the open what’s been overheard in public conversations in Charlottetown, PEI.
