[Tex/LaTex] Wrap text round brackets


I want to accomplish this effect with LaTeX:

enter image description here

I have a slight idea of how to do that using \left{ and \right} on math mode but I’m not sure. If there’s a package that helps to do that, coding would be much easier and code would be much more beautiful.

another possibility is to use the array environment:

He is being
{\arraycolsep=0pt $\left\{
 \begin{array}{l} \mbox{a nuisance}\\ \mbox{naughty} \end{array}

the \arraycolsep has to be localized, otherwise it will apply to the entire document from that point on. if you are already using the amsmath package, you can use \text instead of \mbox.
