It was so pleasant to get lost in the weird and wonderful tall tales of Gustavo "Highway" Sanchez Sanchez, the self-proclaimed best auctioneer in the world and sly narrator of what I can definitely say is the most engaging, smart, and comical dental autobiography I have ever had the privilege of reading. Luiselli's elegant prose can't be missed and her characters and their allegorical stories lean toward the absurd in a way that puts one in mind of the likes of Paul Auster.
