Summary
"Gustavo 'Highway' Sanchez Sanchez is a late-in-life world traveler, yarn spinner, collector, and legendary auctioneer. His most precious possessions are the teeth of the 'Notorious Infamous' like Plato, Petrarch, Chesterton, and Virginia Woolf. Written in collaboration with the workers at a juice factory, 'The story of my teeth' is an elegant, witty, exhilarating romp through the industrial suburbs of Mexico City and Luiselli's own literary influences and a meditation on, as Highway says, 'the variable value' of art"--Back cover blurb
