The Books

One Potato Review

This sneaks up on you. On the surface, it’s an old-fashioned fable about giving and receiving kindness, the man who nurses the pigeon back to health – but this man is also an artist fully committed to cementing his legacy over the rooftops of Rome, and his finishing touches are equally a revelation to the readers and himself. Airy and playful and not too sentimental, the focus remains resolutely on a life worth living, rather than its predictable end.
