This is a novel that, with its sardonic overtones, harks back to the Spanish picaresque novel that originated the genre. A Fool (fool with a capital f, which endows the protagonist with the power of a triumphant innocence) is taken advantage of by a foxy thief. First, by getting out of jail with his misplaced assistance, and then by stealing some gold at the bottom of a well in a priest's house (a priest who has been good to him and who had asked hi mo clean the well). Years later, in San Francisco, the thief reappears in the Fool's life with a a suitcase of CIA's money that destined for the Contras in Nicaragua and which the thief plans to steal by leaving it temporarily in the Fool's hands. The Fool, no longer fooled, tries to return the cash, which in bis eyes stands for the stolen gold of long ago, to a Catholic girls' school. When refused by the stunned Mother Superior, he flushes it down the toilet. The thief is caught by the CIA and the Fool dies by and by, dreaming gloriously of the love of his life.
