One Potato Review

A one joke book, but it’s a pretty funny joke, and maybe a mirror for our times. Here is an institution so excellent at what it does it gradually decides to allow for nothing else. The tyranny is peppy, the agony inevitable, with fine subversive touches (a family dog immersed in the Arts and Leisure section) to light the way.
