The Story of My Teeth by Valeria Luiselli

Interesting, funny at times, a text that unfolds at several levels, including a sort of reverse chronological revelation, a series of black and white photos, oblique quotations that open each section of the book, an author's note explaining her collaborative composition technique, and a translator's appendix that is a chronology of "real events" intertwined with a timeline of the main character of the novel's actions.

Interesting, but not rivetting.
