    In March 1976, Rolling Stone published “The Double-Edged Helix,” an article by Michael Rogers which “unknowingly helped lay the foundation for the captivating current bestseller.”

    “I always thought it was wonderful that Rolling Stone had the first nugget of the story,” Rebecca Skloot says.

    “Skloot’s reporting turns the tale into a breathtaking work of narrative nonfiction, important and heartbreaking,” says Rolling Stone in the May 26, 2011 issue.
