Reading an old story, I have some problems with understanding the following (esp. the part in bold):
it was this very day fifty years ago—February 13—the man disappeared from its shadows; swept in this extraordinary, incredible fashion into invisibility— into some other place.
My understanding (using simpler words where I am more certain about the meaning): ...abruptly carried away, in a very extraordinary and incredible fashion, so that he became invisible and got into another place.
Is that correct? I have particular problems with understanding of "into invisibility".
