The story of Highway Snchezbon vivant, world traveler, auctioneerand his teeth is like Johnny Cash meets Robert Walser in Mexico. I was born in Pachuca, the Beautiful Windy City, with four premature teeth and my body completely covered in a very fine coat of fuzz. But Im grateful for that inauspicious start because ugliness, as my other uncle, Eurpides Lpez Snchez, was given to saying, is character forming. Gustavo Highway Snchez Snchez 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, and Virginia Woolf. Written in collaboration with the workers at a Jumex juice factory, The Story of My Teeth is an elegant, witty, exhilarating romp through the industrial suburbs of Mexico City and Luisellis own literary influences.
