Reality Bites: Holding a Funhouse Mirror Up to Nature - Page 2

Our maverick English Teacher and contrarian considers the adage, "Art holds a mirror up to Nature", and comes up with a list of works by writers who decided to use funhouse mirrors in their attempts to reflect the world. The only limitations were that the works had to be narrative fiction, and, if not quite funny, they at least had to be strange.
