Jeff Bursey

Verbatim: A Novel—Jeff BurseyVerbivoracious Press is bringing out, as part of its Reprint Series, Island author Jeff Bursey’s biting satire Verbatim: A Novel, originally published in 2010 by Enfield & Wizenty. It’s based on Bursey’s experience working in the 1990s in the Newfoundland and Labrador Hansard, the division in legislative assemblies that transcribes and publishes legislative debates. This paperback edition contains critical assessments: a Preface by Dr. Sascha Pöhlmann and an Afterword by Dr. David Hallett.

The blurbs for the new edition give a good idea of what a reader can expect. Noted American novelist Larry Fondation says: “The present state of politics across the globe is unsettled and unsettling; now is no better time to re-issue Jeff Bursey’s terrific Verbatim: A Novel. In this Hansard-styled parody, Bursey portrays political paralysis and bitter backstabbing. An imaginary transcription of parliamentary proceedings demonstrates the pettiness and nastiness of elected officials and bureaucrats alike. Verbatim: A Novel is simultaneously top-flight satire and emotionally affecting, deploying an experimental form propelling the story forward and keeping the reader engaged. Verbatim: A Novel is an outstanding and timely read.”

Verbatim: A Novel is available from Bookmark and other booksellers, online, and from the publisher by writing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
