A little girl goes to the hospital to see her seemingly dying grandmother. While there she becomes transfixed with how large her grandmother's nose is. The dialogue flows as does the children's story. In the end the wolf is cut open to get the grandmother out. A very short 3 page story that takes "Little Red Riding Hood" to the next level.

Grandmother's Nose by Robert Coover
This is a delightful story that could be taken from a perspective of something gross and dying, or as I saw this story, as a different version of "Little Red Riding Hood". While I read this story I couldn't get this story out of my head even though it may not have been the intended plot to the story.
