One Potato Review

Pigs. A heist. An ice-carving. Hmmm. You could worry a little over some of Geisert’s recurring devices, or you could marvel at whatever fixations amount to work of such fanatical detail, both in his intricate etchings of landscapes and flying machines and dinner tables, and in his thoroughly imagined plots and machinations; there’s not enough time in the day to notice every peripheral happening in this book. So let’s marvel. Unapologetic and completely original.
