The humble potato - a changer of worlds, a feeder of nations and a small round tuber that grows underground - in this collection of short stories it's all these things and more.
What if the potato was the key to divining the future, or the home of a malevolent spirit? What if nations went to war over a field of potatoes, if political careers could be made and cast aside on the outcome of a single year's crop?
In this collection of stories the potato is the star. You may think it's a joke, but we take this chip off the old block very seriously indeed.
