Henry comes by at 10:00, and he and Alfred meet Mr. Donatelli for lunch at noon. Alfred and Henry  take a taxi to Spoon's apartment where Alfred can rest through the afternoon. They are impressed by  Spoon's expansive collection of books. Spoon gets home a little after 3:30; his wife, Betty, arrives  shortly thereafter and prepares Alfred's pre-fight meal. Spoon speaks briefly of education and tells  Alfred that he could finish high school at night if he wanted to.

    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.
