One Potato Review

The mind races. Especially when it’s in a hurry to beat the clock. No one treads more thrillingly than Chast between elaboration and non-sequiturs: give this artist the idea of a fish and she will produce Pocket Whales, a Smiley Striper and a Cube-Headed La-Di-Dah. And don’t even get her started on potential careers. Bowler? Inventor? Banjo-playing space explorer? “Who could go to bed when there were trampoline-jumping records to be broken?” Oh, all of this is channeled through a bird. For many ages.
