The following expression is of the type y (x). How do I find its inverse x (y)?
y[x_] = Piecewise[{{x - 1, -2 <= x < 0}, {x + 1, 0 <= x < 2}}]

Reduce applied in each piecewise composition, and then assembled to function x (y). But when the piecewise function has many expressions, it is tedious to solve in this way. Anyone know any way to solve this problem?
x[y_] = Piecewise[{{1 + y, -3 <= y < -1}, {y - 1, 1 <= y < 3}}]
