In fact I already read this in a collection of Calvino's folktales. Three years later, I'm re-reading it for bookclub and shaking my fists in glee all over again. How could I forget Gian dei Brughi's reading? Reminds me a little bit of the pancake-eating thief in Tampopo: one more bite before going off to the pokey. I'm giving it story appeal, but really it's character and language too.
