Growing up short and wiry, plain and tough, in adolescence Jo had ignored her mother’s invitations to come out as a deb and had concentrated instead on biology, dissecting rather than attending balls….The disintegration of her family had intensified her medical achievement, as if by learning how to do a stellar rectal exam she could detect her family’s psychological cancer. And so Jo had come to the House of God, and had become its most ruthless and competitive resident. (HOG 82)
