We also learn more about Aarfy's character. He mocks Nately for spending so much on the prostitute  and boasts, "I never paid for it in my life." At other times, Aarfy is a sycophant who caters to Nately  because he thinks that Nately's wealthy father can help him after the war. Foreshadowing his  behavior later in the novel, Aarfy reveals a shallow, sadistic side to his personality. He delights in  telling about his college days when he and his fraternity brothers tortured and raped two high-school  girls. "Boy, we used to have fun in that fraternity house," Aarfy boasts nostalgically. Heller satirically raises other questions of values through his exaggerated, comic depiction of Milo's  management of his syndicate. Milo now has planes arriving from such markets as Liberia, Cairo, and  Karachi. He deals with everyone except Russia — because it is Communist; but he has no problem

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
