All Land an Island. All Blue the Sea
In 2020 Tracy Burkholder set out to post a photo and short freewrite every day as a simple exercise. As the year unraveled into a swirl of pandemic, unemployment, social unrest and various literal and figurative fires, this small art challenge became a valuable daily ritual. All Land and Island. All Blue the Sea brings together a collection of these visual/textual contemplations to create a diary of a difficult but still wondrous year.

“This book ignites language at the surface of my very skin.”Lidia Yuknavitch, author of Verge.
In a hybrid of poetry, memoir and image, Tracy Burkholder maps the experience of want and the ways it is born, complicated and celebrated from childhood to middle-age. From the pleading of a child’s prayers to the ecstasy of a perfect spring night, to the frank exploration of an open relationship, I Want More expands beyond the realm of boy meets girl (or girl meets girl) into the internal and external geographies that make up the territory of our desire.
