The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot Absolutely fascinating mix of biography, investigative journalism, biology, medical history and ethics, and race relations. I'm glad I finally got around to reading this. I didn't mind the author's insertion of herself into the story; the mistreatment of the family over the years has been so extensive that the only way to tell the story fairly was to gain their trust, and how Skloot went about this ends up being a key part of the narrative.
