Latour dislikes the atmosphere of the house, with giggling women and the hedonistic snores of  Martinez. When he rises to close Martinez's door to shut out his snoring, Latour discovers the hair of  a woman discarded from a brush in the corner of the room, which disgusts him even more.

    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.
