Halfway through the third week, the pain subsides. Alfred is getting in shape. He wakes up before the  alarm in the morning and runs smoothly. Still, Alfred feels isolated. Spoon drops by and pays some  attention to him, but days pass when no one says a word. At work, Lou Epstein reveals that he was  once a fighter known as "Lightning Lou Epp." Alfred is impressed. Lou respects Donatelli and Bud  Martin but is skeptical about the way that the profession of boxing has changed. He appears to  genuinely care for Alfred. Alfred grows weary of the routine of training. He wants to get in the ring and spar. He is beginning to  wonder what the point of it all is. In late July, Aunt Pearl has to go out of town; she leaves the girls in  Queens with Dorothy and Wilson, and Alfred has the apartment to himself.

    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.
