Stranger than Fiction

by LorianBartle (WorldCat user published 2018-03-13) Very Good Permalink

This book is an excellent biography and certainly a stranger-than-fiction story. The story of the cell line is interesting enough but it's amazing to see how it compares to the her life and that of her family. A recommended read.
