Prompt: Midway through the novel, Ruth's hopes about living a life similar to her "possible" (i.e., the woman after which she was modelled/cloned) are dashed, and she laments that "We're modelled from trash. Junkies, prostitutes, winos, tramps. Convicts, maybe, just so long as they aren't psychos. . . . If you want to look for possibles, if you want to do it properly, then you look in the gutter. You look in rubbish bins. Look down the toilet, that's where you'll find where we all came from" (166).
