Biography: 

Ginsfarb has supplied an illegal airplane license and signed on an unlicensed pilot, Jock, to run a barnstorming show. He is so greedy for money that he can't be trusted to negotiate the price for the show in the small towns they visit: "he'd stick out for his price too long" and so might well attract the attention of "anybody that might catch them" running the illegal show (195, 194). He is identified as "a Jew," like Jake, and as a man who limps, like Captain Warren. Unlike Jake, Ginsfarb talks a lot; unlike Warren, he wasn't injured in a war but in an airborne argument over the amount of his fee. His big nose and under-proportioned jaw make him look like a shark in profile, and his clothes and helmet are dirty and torn. His favorite expression of disgust is "Gruss Gott" ("great God"); the phrase and his accent indicate that he is German, perhaps a first-generation immigrant. His hatred and fear of his profession contrast with Jock's obsessive love of it.
