Editorial Reviews

Review

''The Story of My Teeth explores the meaning of home through the antics of an auctioneer, told in his own hyperbolic fashion, who has decided views on the meaning of value and worth in life and art.'' --BBC.com

''This kind of writing -- direct and gentle, affectionate and satirical, precise and imaginative, memorable and efficient -- appears throughout, and the character of Gustavo is brought to life with exquisite imaginative power and beautifully judged tics and cadences…It is a sad, beautiful, and brilliant book. It will endure.'' --National (Abu Dhabi)

''A fiercely intelligent, inventive, and hilarious exploration of worth, value, and creation in the worlds of art and literature.'' --Bookanista

''Surprising and charming…It's difficult not to follow wherever it takes you.'' --Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed review)

''A lively, loopy experimental novel rich with musings on language, art, and, yes, teeth…The whole book is a kind of extended commentary on how possessions acquire value largely through the stories we tell about them….A clever philosophical novel that, as the author puts it, has 'less to do with lying than surpassing the truth.' '' --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''The Story of My Teeth has a Joycean playfulness with words, events, structure, literary theory, languages, and human nature.'' --Midwest Book Review
