On the other hand, Starving is another symbol that the writer uses to represent how the family feels about Papi. Papi is starving his family of affection and love, while they all seem to desire some of Papi’s love and affection Papi seem very distant from them. Yunior disapproves completely of his father’s affair by the vomiting when he gets in the van, a van his father got to impress his mistress.
