Poetry. Daniel M. Shapiro's first full-length collection of poems illuminates histories that never quite existed but probably should have. Game show panelists transcend their dated oneliners. Artists collapse under their own pride. A refreshing blend of humor and playful uneasiness, HOW THE POTATO CHIP WAS INVENTED simultaneously celebrates and lampoons what it means to be a celebrity.
