    The mirror-maker has placed a different mirror in each room of his home. Originally, he made them to show his ideal self: taller, more assured, less hair-loss, etc. Failure to succeed in this resulted in smashing. But now …. Some of the mirrors show nothing. Others show the inventor the self he’d always secretly wanted […]
