The Wire | The Story of My Teeth



Valeria Luiselli, author of The Story of My Teeth, Coffee House Press

From The Story of My Teeth, by Valeria Luiselli, translated by Christina MacSweeney, available from our friends at Coffee House Press:

"I'm the best auctioneer in the world, but no one knows it because I'm a discreet sort of man. My name is Gustavo Sanchez Sanchez, though people call me Highway, I believe with affection. I can imitate Janis Joplin after two rums. I can interpret Chinese fortune cookies. I can stand an egg upright on a table, the way Christopher Columbus did in the famous anecdote. I know how to count to eight in Japanese: ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku, shichi, hachi. I can float on my back."

This book is great, punchy, entertaining, and funny. I've had a great time reading it.
