My Secret Boat
A Notebook of Prose and Poems
Written as a notebook, My Secret Boat is a collage of stories, poems, dreams, and sketches. Among Burkard's subjects are childhood, the sea, family, alcoholism, love.
We follow the narrator on a journey as he explores the images, characters, and incidents from his past. Identities merge and even become contrary.

“Burkard's carefully reduced stock of images is powerful: the sea, a laterns, snow, rain and ghosts. . . . The speaker lends a voluminous consciousness to us that sympathetic readers will not soon forget.” — Publishers Weekly
