In The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Rebecca Skloot provides detailed portraits of the people who played a role in, or whose lives were impacted by, the discovery of HeLa cells: Henrietta Lacks, her physicians, medical research teams, and her children. Skloot explores ethical issues that emerge from the interplay of race and poverty in one of the most important science stories of the 20th century.
