From the Back Cover

"Il Grasso Legnaiuolo gives the flavour of Florentine intellectualism. It is the story of a beffa or jest - a trick played by Brunelleschi and his friends on the fat woodworker. This picture of self-alienation, which is more terrifying and cleverer than anything in Pirandello, is told as a true incident, well known in its own time, which befell a certain Manetti degli Ammannatini. The genius of Brunelleschi is the real hero of the tale; this genius, which found the way to calculate the vanishing point, could make a bulky man vanish or seem to himself to vanish, like a ball juggled by a conjurer, while still in plain sight." (Mary McCarthy, The Stones of Florence)
