One Potato Review

No, really. It’s hard to imagine some poor editors’ reaction when Radunsky approached them with this idea, apparently inspired by a urinating statue in Brussels – that and his native continent’s inclination for ruinous, ridiculous war. Was this one part of four-book deal with Atheneum to keep Radunsky happy? The happier the better, it says here – even through this author’s occasional misfires and rebellions – because you cannot inhibit this sort of splashy enthusiasm without also imperiling the singular visions it sometimes spits out.
